Reflection from a Chorus Alumna On traveling internationally with the chorus…
“We were more than chorale members on those Cabrini Choir trips; we were international ambassadors. We sang in the local language, shared our passion for music, and connected with our diverse audiences.
I remember the diminutive though larger-than-life Adeline Bethany, vigorously directing our notes while cueing us to smile. I remember the adventure and the interaction that inspired a 17-year love affair with travel and living abroad in Asia.
I am so grateful to Dr. Bethany for leading these experiential chorus trips, for directing our eyes to the world outside our campus, and for sharing her passions with us. We are forever improved by these gifts.”
-Virginia A. Smith Sheridan ’87
