MIAMI SPRINGS, FL – April 5, 2013 – The Ambassador Chorale from Florida Memorial University will appear at the Curtiss Mansion on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00 p.m. to sing a variety of popular songs and selections from contemporary choral literature under the direction of Dr. Melvin White. Since its founding in 1976, the 18-voice Chorale has performed in many international locations as well as a variety of local venues and shared their special brand of music to standing ovations and international acclaim.

Make plans to enjoy the beautiful blend of well-trained voices and the elegance of the Curtiss Mansion under the stars in the restored central Courtyard, weather permitting; otherwise, the performance will be held in the living room. Bring your family and friends for what is certain to be a phenomenal performance and another outstanding evening at the Mansion.
