Sing! welcomes Duluth’s version of spring with a few concerts. (Details are on the Calendar page at this site.) We start this coming Saturday with a performance for the residents of Aftenro home. Edie Armstrong, who will be in the audience, is a former member of the chorus and I’m very happy to be able to bring our songs to her.
We are also busy getting ready for our performance with Sowah Mensah, the UMD Percussion Ensemble, and students from Harbor City International School. The music we’ll be doing is kind of challenging, but so exciting and appealing. Traditional music from Ghana is designed to leave everyone present feeling good, and I always find that the case whenever I have the chance to play this music.
After a short spring break the chorus will get serious about preparing for our show at the Homegrown Music Festival. We have some great new songs, and the group’s sound is very strong this year. Our Saturday evening slot at Teatro Zuccone kicks off a night of singing at that venue, including Bill Bastien, and Kirtan singing.
Check us out! And make sure to stop by and say hello to me.
