Do you love to sing? Classical Minnesota Public Radio seeks voices of all abilities for the second season of Bring the Sing, a community choral event. Part sing-along, part workshop, it's music-making fun for all, and you're invited to join the fun.
You'll work with a wonderful conductor, sing with choral enthusiasts from your community, and hear the result on Classical MPR's Choral Stream. Importantly, you don't need to be able to read music in order to participate.
In 2017, we're taking Bring the Sing to three Minnesota cities: Rochester, Duluth (a return visit) and a third city to be named soon.
Bring the Sing – RochesterBring the Sing - Rochester, with Conductor Joe Osowski, will take place Saturday, Jan. 14, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Lourdes High School's Fine Arts Auditorium (2800 19th St NW in Rochester). Lobby doors open at 9:15 a.m. — please arrive in enough time to check in at one of the tables in the lobby.
- The event includes an extended refreshment break so you can enjoy getting to know your singing neighbors.
- Songs for the Rochester event are listed here. When you sign up, if you would like your sheet music prior to the event, please enter your address so we can mail it to you (note: deadline for requesting music to be mailed is January 4); otherwise, you can plan to pick it up at the event when you arrive.
- Because audio and video recording will take place during the event, you will be required to sign and turn in a media release form. Please bring the signed form with you when you arrive. (Please request sheet music only if you intend to sing on Saturday, Jan. 14. If you find, after receiving the music, that you cannot attend, we ask that you please let us know, and that you return the music to Classical MPR.)
