Calliope singers will join the Twin Cities Youth Chorale and members of the National Lutheran Choir for Harmony in the Park 2015 at Minnehaha Park on June 4.
Bring your picnic blanket and a lawn chair for an evening of choral music that kicks off at 7 p.m.
As the official press release puts it: “These free concerts give Minnesotans and visitors the chance to hear choral music, a treasured part of our state’s culture, in beautiful city-park settings.” Yup. We’re all about that.
Admission is free, and the show goes on rain or shine. The park is a short walk from the 50th Street/Minnehaha Park light rail stop.
Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, manager of Classical MPR’s Choral Works Initiative, will be our talented host for the evening, and we hear he has some fun ideas in store for the audience.
The next Harmony in the Park event is scheduled for June 15 in Duluth’s Leif Erikson Park, and will feature performances by the Twin Ports Choral Project, Lake Superior Youth Chorus, and Echoes of Peace Choir.
A resounding “thank you” goes out to Classical MPR for this exciting invitation to perform.
Harmony in the Park is sponsored by Classical MPR and is made possible in part by the Minnesota Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
MPR will be collecting gently-used musical instruments at both the Minneapolis and Duluth events for Play It Forward, Classical MPR’s used-instrument drive.
