His choral groups were awarded-winning throughout his career, and he insisted on high standards from his students across classical, sacred, and contemporary musical styles. His groups traveled around the United States and the world representing the community, including Mexico, Hawaii, Colorado, Tennessee, France, and the Bahamas. His annual Madrigal dinners, performances of medieval period Christmas music, were a mainstay of Danville’s holiday season. In addition, he also served as choral director at First Presbyterian Church in Danville, Hoopeston United Methodist Church in Hoopeston, and for the Vermilion Festival Chorus. Most of all, Larry taught his students what is possible when you work hard as members of a team and family, and left each of them to have a lifelong love and appreciation of music.
This fund is to establish a scholarship in honor of Larry Voorhees for graduating seniors from Danville High School pursuing a degree in Music.
