Benefit Dinner Chorus

Please Join Us to Sing at the Benefit Dinner on December 6, 2019 with the Freed-Hardeman University Chorale


Beginning in 1950, almost 70 years ago, with Kelley B. Doyle, Freed-Hardeman has enjoyed a rich, and extraordinary choral tradition. As part of the 150th anniversary celebration, Freed-Hardeman invites alumni and friends to join the University Chorale to provide entertainment for the Annual Benefit Dinner.
