    Sing On! Bridges 2010

    Bridges, the Chorale's flagship community-engagement program, doesn't just identify social problems. It tackles them. Case in point: this fall's Bridges project, Sing On!

    Aware that the voices of older Minnesotans were going unheard, we've organized (together with our friends at the MacPhail Center) a new choir of Twin Cities senior adults called Voices of Experience. Flanked by the Minnesota Chorale and the Minneapolis Youth Chorus, VoX (as we're calling it) makes its debut at this festive, one-of-a-kind event, which features four generations singing side-by-side.

    Join us for the inaugural performance of VoX, along with the Chorale and our Youth Chorus, in a family-friendly concert starting at 3 p.m., Sunday, November 21, at Westwood Lutheran Church, 9001 Cedar Lake Road, St. Louis Park.

    Tickets (available by calling the Chorale at 612.455.2100) are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors, students, and MPR members, and free for kids 12 and under.

    Chorale elected to MN Music Hall of Fame
    MN Music Hall of Fame

    The Minnesota Chorale is delighted to be one of this year's inductees into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. The annual induction ceremony takes place next month; our "class" of honorees includes the Andrews Sisters!

    Located in New Ulm, the hall was established "to honor musicians who have contributed significantly to the Minnesota music scene." Past inductees include the Minnesota Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Dale Warland Singers, Bob Dylan, Judy Garland, and Prince. We're honored to be included in such lofty company!

    Rejoice vocally!

    December, invariably the Chorale's busiest month, is just eight weeks away--which means that our annual Messiah Sing-Along (Dec. 5 at St. Olaf Catholic Church in downtown Minneapolis) is practically around the corner. It's led, of course, by Kathy Saltzman Romey, who can make an unrehearsed audience sound like a trained choir. The sing-along is unticketed; a free-will offering will be taken. And don't forget our concert performances of Handel's masterpiece with the Minnesota Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä (Dec. 8-11) or our yearly holiday concerts with Doc Severinsen (Dec. 16 and 19). Tickets for these latter events are available from the Orchestra Hall box office at 612.371.5656.

    A Date to Save!
    Cabernet Cabaret logo

    SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 14, 2011. That's the date of the Minnesota Chorale's annual gala, Cabernet Cabaret. (True, we have to get through winter first, but to Minnesotans that's scarcely a challenge.) As always, there'll be scrumptious food and wine, live and silent auctions, and ear-pleasing entertainment by the Chorale and the Minneapolis Youth Chorus. Where else would you want to be?

    Mark your calendar, paper or digital, before another day passes. And stay tuned for further details.
