Calliope Women’s Chorus and beloved men’s choral ensemble Cantus are joining forces for a performance at the Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul on Saturday, April 8.
The performance is part of Cantus’ America Will Be! series. From Cantus’ website, here’s a description of the series: “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness haven’t always meant the same thing for all. How does an entire country change? How are rights and freedoms earned? In America Will Be!, Cantus explores the sacrifices of some of our nation’s greatest heroes at home: men and women fighting for the evident truth that all people are equal. Featuring timeless spirituals like Harry T. Burleigh’s ‘Deep River’ and ‘This Ol’ Hammer’ by John W. Work, as well as new voices in American music, America Will Be! looks toward the potential of the American promise.”

When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 8
