Every 3-4 years the Otterbein Concert Choir tours abroad. In December 2017, the choir has been invited to the 2017 American Celebration of Music in Germany, a prestigious international concert series festival.  Choir alumni regularly report that their overseas tour was a pinnacle experience of their Otterbein years.  On these tours, Otterbein singers create human connections through music (despite language and cultural differences), learn the history of distant cultures and experience tremendous growth in musicianship. They learn how to function in a foreign culture, work on a skilled team toward a key long-term goal, work together to earn funds for students in need, and gain important travel skills. In short, Concert Choir overseas tours provide Otterbein students with a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  How was your life impacted from your experiences? Would you like to provide that experience for an Otterbein student?


Otterbein volunteers have always played a critical role for the University. Your role as a campaign volunteer is to cultivate and develop and shape the Institution's future by helping to raise Otterbein's profile, advocating for support, and securing resources for specific initiatives.
