COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Voices of the Valley is Columbus State University's traditional vocal ensemble for children ages 9-16.

The choir joined St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Norwich, England for a week-long residency at Norwich Cathedral performing Evensong.

The students also had the opportunity to perform at Ely Cathedral, Wells-next-the-Sea and St. John's College at Cambridge University.

"I'm an educator. If I'm not here to change lives, what am I doing?" said Dr. Michelle Herring-Folta, director and Columbus State professor prior to the trip being made. "This trip will forever change the lives of our students."
