European Tour Summer 2020
Information about the Tour:
Evangel's Sinfonia is a campus ensemble under the direction of Dr. Larry Dissmore, director of Orchestral Activities at Evangel University. The Sinfonia's primary purpose is to serve as a touring ensemble, traveling all over the United States and around the world as a testament to the University's commitment to equipping students to use their God-given talents to impact the church and society globally. This year, the Sinfonia will embark on its sixth European tour, its last of which happened in 2016 where it performed 15 concerts in Italy, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.
The group has recorded 12 CDs, the latest of which is currently in production for release. The Sinfonia performs classical, sacred and contemporary Christian repertoire as well as various arrangements for voices with orchestra accompaniment. The members of the group are selected by audition and all members play with another major ensemble on campus.
