Is there anything more cheering on a snowy winter weekend than joining in song with your fellow lovers of choral music? Two upcoming community sing-along events provide the perfect opportunity to create a beautiful experience—whatever your skill level. (Hint: nobody will know if you just move your lips during the hard parts!)
The Minnesota Chorale is holding the second of this season’s three singalongs on Sunday January 28, at 4:00 p.m. All are welcome to join in the Requiem Singalong at Hamline United Methodist Church in St. Paul—no reservations required. Conducted by Kathy Saltzman Romey with accompaniment from guest organist Melanie Ohnstad, the program will feature French master Fauré’s reflective opus Requiem.
On Friday February 2, Minnesota choral group The Singers will be hosting a Community Sing of John Rutter’s poignant Requiem. Gather at St. Paul’s House of Hope Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m. for a free singalong led by artistic director Matthew Culloton with the House of Hope Motet Choir, organist Aaron David Miller, and even a chamber orchestra. No need to register or hunt down music scores—just bring your passion.
