For 60+ years, the University Choir has held retreats before coming back to class in the fall. More recently, we have started a tradition of returning prior to the January start of classes. Very few choir camps, however, have been so affected by massive snowstorms. It’s a testament to the bonds of this group that members of the University Choir braved winter storm Jonas and trekked across campus, while most people would have rather curled up on a couch at home.
We made the best of it, though, and the best of it turned out to be pretty great. Doc realized there was no place for us go beside rehearsal – so we accomplished what singers at Lehigh have always done: we made music! And also went sledding, as you can see from the photo.
Seeing the Valley’s heaviest snowstorm in decades with friends made this an unforgettable choir camp
