With a goal of forging community connections through song, members of the community are invited to take part in Classical Minnesota Public Radio's "Bring the Sing" series which will come to Luther College from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 14, in the Center for Faith and Life on Luther's campus. "Bring the Sing" is an open choral event for voices of all abilities junior high age and above.
The event is open to the public with no charge to attend, though registration is required. To participate, singers can register at tinyurl.com/bring-the-sing. Due to the audio and video recording of the event, participants will be required to sign and submit a media release form.
"Bring the Sing" strives to make classical choral music accessible to communities far and wide while providing an opportunity to bond as a community. The event will consist of a rehearsal and recording of several songs. Recordings from the event will be shared online at a later date on classicalmpr.org and considered for broadcast in MPR's Choral Stream. Andrew Last, assistant professor of music and conductor of Nordic Choir, and Mark Potvin, instructor of music and conductor of Norsemen and Cathedral Choir, will lead the event. Refreshments will be provided during the event.
