MU On the Road: Carnegie Hall


The women of the Mansfield University Concert Choir have been invited to perform as the Nun’s Chorus in a concert performance of The Sound of Music at Carnegie Hall in New York City on Tuesday, April 24. This will be a special one-night-only performance and funds raised will directly support Carnegie Hall’s artistic, educational, and community programming.


The Mansfield singers and MU Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Peggy Dettwiler will spend three days in New York City rehearsing and performing. The Sound of Music, a classic Broadway musical, continues to warm hearts, decades after its 1959 debut, and April 24th is sure to be a magical evening of enchanting and memorable music. Click here to learn more about the special invitation.

If you aren’t able to make the evening performance, plan to join supporters from Mansfield who will be traveling to New York to attend the afternoon dress rehearsal at 1 pm. The rehearsal will be a complete run-through in full costume and reservations are required.   The MU Alumni Office has made arrangements with Susquehanna Trailways to provide round-trip coach bus transportation. In addition to stopping in Mansfield, the bus will also pick up passengers in Williamsport and at the Columbia Mall near Bloomsburg. If enough interest, the bus will also stop in East Stroudsburg. Cost is $75 per person and reservations and payment are required by Wednesday, April 18 (no refunds after this date).  If you wish to join us for the afternoon dress rehearsal but provide your own transportation, there is no charge but you are still required to make a reservation.
