Chorale trip to Spain is topic of next Associates program

Monmouth College faculty members Michael Harrison and Tim Pahel will be featured at the monthly meeting of Monmouth Associates on Nov. 15 at 12 noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Center.
In May, the Monmouth College Chorale, under the direction of Pahel, traveled to Spain and performed at several venues, including “an old, beautiful church” in Lloret de Mar, which is in Spain’s Catalan region.
“We sang in front of a full house of about 400 people,” said Pahel. “The crowd was very enthusiastic, and we got three standing ovations.”
Harrison, an assistant professor of modern foreign languages, accompanied the group, serving as a tour guide and even joining the Chorale in their performances.
The program is free; a buffet lunch costs $10. Reservations can be made by calling 309-457-2316 by Nov. 12 or by emailing at
A free shuttle van transports passengers from two locations to every Associates luncheon. The van will stop at the Faith United Presbyterian Church parking lot at 11:45 a.m. and at the northeast quadrant of the Public Square at approximately 11:50 a.m. It will return to both locations immediately following the program. Shuttle reservations should be made by calling the above number.
