    Homecoming – 25th Anniversary Celebration Concert

    Group: Training Chorus, Chorale, MasterSingers and Alumni

    Location: Miller Center for the Arts, Reading Area Community College, Reading, PA

    Tickets for this event only: http://www.racc.edu/MillerCenter/events.aspx

    This 25th Anniversary Spring Concert celebrates excellence in music and art. BYC proudly presents the concert with Miller Center for the Arts, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this season. Homecoming, which honors singers past and present, invites alumni to sing side-by-side with current singers in BYC’s signature song, “Blessing.”

    You’ll enjoy an enhanced concert experience with a projected art display by Chip Kidd, an award-winning graphic designer and writer in New York. His groundbreaking book jacket designs for Alfred A. Knopf have elevated the form for close to three decades. His most notable book cover design was for Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park novel, which was so successful that it carried over into marketing for the film adaptation.

    Miller Center will present an exhibit of Mr. Kidd’s creative work and will host a pre-concert reception for VIP ticket holders to meet Mr. Kidd.

    Free parking is available for all Miller Center events in the Parking Garage located on the corner of 1st & Washington
