Over the past 16 years the Rutgers Chorus has made eight international concert tours, performing in Germany, the Czech Republic, The Netherlands, France, England, Scotland, Wales, Italy and Spain.  During its Wales tour the Chorus performed live over BBC Wales Radio.  The Croesco (Cardiff) wrote that the “Rutgers Chorus has everything.  They’re a veritable United Nations on stage with huge musical talent, a strong sense of rhythm, the disciplined precision to deliver a clear, vigorous young sound, full of joy and enthusiasm.”  In New Jersey the Chorus’s ongoing mission of campus outreach has included performances in over 25 communities in the five counties surrounding Newark, serving, as in the words of the Star-Ledger, as musical “prime ambassadors” of Rutgers-Newark.

The United Methodist Church in Madison is located at 24 Madison Avenue. Regular Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 10 a.m. Sunday school classes for children, as well as childcare for infants and toddlers, are offered at 10 a.m. The church is handicapped accessible.
