Washington Adventist University and Insouciance Abroad are proud to bring you these world class ensembles. The orchestra and chorale have traveled the world, most recently touring South Africa for four weeks in 2012 under the management of Insouciance Abroad, and they are now proud to bring their wonderfully varied program back to their roots in New England. For Dr. Bingham, choral director and chair of the music department, Massachusetts is an opportunity to return to his teaching roots, having spent many years teaching at Atlantic Union College. New York is equally familiar as both groups have frequently performed at Carnegie Hall both during their time at Atlantic Union College and at Washington Adventist University.

“The program was nicely balanced for contrasts between unaccompanied performances and those with orchestra.” - The Washington Post

“As always, it was a true pleasure to make music with you and your students, and please do give singers and orchestra my heartfelt thanks and congratulations.” - John Rutter
