The University of Idaho “Concert Choir” at EUUC on Wednesday, March 14 at 7:30 PM. This is a free concert! The Vandaleers are directed by Paul Thompson. This select group performs the finest choral repertoire of all styles and eras, and serves as the premiere touring choral ensemble at the University of Idaho. In addition to frequent tours of the Northwest region, past concert tours have taken the ensemble to Europe, South America, Washington, D.C., Carnegie Hall in New York City and most recently, a concert tour of Austria, Germany and Czech Republic in 2010. They will be performing music by Bach, Vivaldi, Vaughan Williams, Rheinberger, and others.

Paul Thompson is assistant professor and Director of Choral Activities at the University of Idaho where he conducts choral ensembles, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in choral conducting, choral methods classes, and oversees the masters program in choral conducting. He comes to this position from Francis Marion University in Florence, SC, where he was Director of Choral Activities and Voice Area Coordinator. Thompson has also been a member of the choral faculty at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc, and spent four years directing the choirs at St. Marys Springs High School in Fond du Lac, WI.
