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 wonderful conductors, 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.
As part of MPR's 50th anniversary celebration, we're taking Bring the Sing to Saint John's University in Collegeville on Wednesday, April 26. We're excited to welcome conductor G. Phillip Schoultz III of VocalEssence to Bring the Sing to lead our singing community. See below for more details.

The event begins with a light buffet in the Great Hall near the Abbey so you can get acquainted with your neighbors and get ready to sing.
