Choir Reunion (part of Homecoming Weekend)
We have so much to celebrate – the new Student Center, the Music department's new home in Cowles, Homecoming, and the wonderful work of the Grand View Choir. The current Grand View Choir stands on the shoulders of all those who have sung before us, and we want to celebrate that by having an alumni choir the weekend of Homecoming.
