The Dayton chapter was started by Dr. Linda Hartley, UD Professor of Music, who founded and has directed the program there for almost 20 years. The program partners with the University of Dayton music education majors who offer music instruction as an extension of their teacher education fieldwork.
The Trill Seekers perform traditional and classical music arrangements, many arranged by choir member Mike OBrien. The program will include Teddy Bear’s Picnic, When I’m 64,Canon in D, Ashokan Farewell, and a medley of patriotic tunes to honor veterans in a tribute to Armed Forces Day.
