Youth Choir Director Tommy Strawser announced that the PVUMC Youth Choir will attend the Youth Choir Festival Northwest at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA on June 9 & 10, 2017. The festival occurs once every four years (last one being held in 2013) and is an opportunity for youth choirs across the country and abroad to showcase the work they do throughout the year and perform as one large youth choir ensemble. The festival will be just one part of our Youth Choir Tour from June 8-12, 2017 in the Seattle, WA area.
