Win a trip to Washington and help the Terra Choral Society

Terra State Community College in Fremont is sponsoring a raffle for the opportunity to win a free trip to Washington and travel with the Terra Choral Society and Jazz Ambassadors on their tour to participate in the National Memorial Day festivities in May.

The Choral Society sang in the National Memorial Day Choral Festival at the Kennedy Center two years ago, and will be returning to participate again this May. This year, the Jazz Ambassadors will also be traveling with the Choral Society and presenting several concerts in Washington. The chorus and band will also share a public concert.

The winner of the raffle will be able to go backstage to the Kennedy Center, travel and attend concerts with the musicians, and visit the monuments and grounds of our nation’s Capitol. 

In a special fundraiser to help off-set the costs of the trip, the organizers will be selling raffle tickets for $20. Tickets are sale from now until the winner is announced at the college's jazz concert on Thursday, April 10. The winner will then join the musicians as they travel to Washington May 22-26.
