Choir combines voices, Thai instrument

The Unkalung Choir from Madison will perform at 5:30 p.m. April 6 at St. John Lutheran Church, Merrill.

The volunteer choir blends voices with the unkalung, a bamboo instrument from Thailand, and is the only known performing group to combine the two.

The choir is directed by Betty Mansfield, who formed it in 1977 after she traveled to Thailand to study the unkalung and adapt it to current Western music. The choir has toured through the United States and in Canada, Russia and Norway as a public relations tool for the Bethel Series.

The concert is free; donations will be accepted.
