McMINNVILLE ? Members of the Linfield College choir and brass quintet will present a concert Thursday, April 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Melrose Auditorium at Linfield.

The performance, which is free and open to the public, will be the final performance of a spring break tour in Hawaii by the two groups. The program includes a wide variety of musical styles, which the choir and quintet will perform together and separately.

Larry Marsh, Linfield professor of music and director of the 28-member choir, said the group will perform seven concerts during their eight-day stay on Oahu. They open for the Honolulu Symphony Masterworks Concert featuring flute soloist James Galway at a lanai concert in Blaisdel Hall in Honolulu. Other performance locations include Punahou Academy, the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, First Baptist Church in Honolulu, First Baptist Church-Windward in Kailua and Central Union Church in Honolulu.

The Linfield Concert Choir was organized in 1930 and is the oldest such group in the Pacific Northwest. Throughout its history, the choir has distinguished itself with concerts throughout the 10 western states and Canada. The choir has performed throughout the world including Vienna, Eisenstadt, Salzburg, Stuttgart and London.
