  • Voices at Work

    Although the Chorale's next performance isn't until May 3 (helping VocalEssence celebrate its 40th anniversary), we're anything but idle. Kathy Saltzman Romey and the singers are busily rehearsing our spring programs with orchestra. First comes Jennifer Higdon's The Singing Rooms (May 21 and 22), co-commissioned by the Minnesota Orchestra and completed in 2007. And our season finale (June 11-13) is Beethoven's radiant Missa Solemnis, one of the most demanding works in the choral repertoire. Tickets for all these programs are in short supply; reserve yours now by calling 612.371.5656.

    An Evening of Magic
    MYC and Chorale singers in performance

    Do you believe in magic?

    A near-capacity crowd at the Woman's Club of Minneapolis on February 21st certainly did--and they gave the Chorale's Minneapolis Youth Chorus ovation after ovation in its first self-produced concert. Led by founding director Patrice Arasim and accompanied by Walter Tambor, MYC was joined by the women of the Chorale, conductor Kathy Romey, and the Fairlanes doo-wop quartet for a program that had something for everyone. Refreshments followed, and more than $500 was raised to support the work of MYC. If you missed this performance, don't fret: you'll have many more opportunities to connect with MYC. There's a lot more magic in these kids' future.

    InChoir Update

    We're sorry to inform fans of the Chorale's InChoir series that our March 26 program has been cancelled. The last InChoir event of the season, devoted to Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, will be held as scheduled on May 4, beginning promptly at 7 p.m., at St. Olaf Catholic Church in Minneapolis. See you then!
