The songbird from Brooklyn said an elementary school glee club conductor sparked her singing career when he gave her a classical piece to perform. “That’s when I realized I had a solo voice and really liked singing,” says Sibongile Boyd. “It was just something about the grandeur of it that attracted me. I preferred singing more than listening to instrumental pieces.”
The Binghamton University Alumni Association and Department of Theatre are offering a tour of Scotland, which will take place Aug. 7 – 16, 2009. The tour is open to the public.
Theatre professors Tom Kremer and Carol Hanscom will serve as your faculty hosts. Travelers will hunt for the Loch Ness Monster and explore Inverness in the Highlands before traveling to the North Sea coast. The trip includes a stop at Dunnottar Castle, an ancient coastal fortress. After a visit to St. Andrew’s, the tour makes its way to Edinburgh, home of Fringe 2009, the world’s largest performing arts festival.
The cost is $2,599 per person for a shared accommodation. That price includes roundtrip airfare, lodging, entrance and admission fees, and some meals. Anyone interested in the trip must make a $500 deposit as soon as possible.
