Thermal, CA -   The Board of Trustees and Superintendent Darryl Adams are happy to welcome the Plymouth State University Chamber Singers and Dr. Dan Perkins, director of choral activities at PSU to the Coachella Valley Unified School District.

During their 3 day visit from January 14-16, 2015, the Chamber Singers and Dr. Perkins will tour several of our area schools and present CVUSD students with interactive workshops and performances.

Dr. Perkins students have performed to critical acclaim throughout the USA, Canada, England, South Africa, Vietnam, Italy, and most recently, in 2014, Chile.
