|First Master Chorale concert is Oct. 15|
The Grand Forks Master Chorale will team up with the Fargo-Moorhead Chamber Chorale for two concerts, "Uncommon Choral Masterworks," to kick off the 2006-07 season. The first concert is Sunday, Oct. 15, 7:30 p.m. at United Lutheran Church in Grand Forks. The second is Sunday, Oct. 22, 4 p.m. at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Moorhead, Minn. More than 60 voices will perform works by master composers. Jon Nero directs the Master Chorale, with accompaniment from Sara Bloom. JoAnn Miller is the artistic director of the Fargo-Moorhead Chamber Chorale. "We're excited about the opportunity to sing again with JoAnn and the Fargo-Moorhead Chamber Chorale. They are a great ensemble," said Peter Johnson, Master Chorale development director.
For the Grand Forks concert, the Master Chorale is incorporating a harvest theme of sorts, said Johnson. Audience members who buy their tickets at the door Oct. 15 can get advance ticket prices if they bring at least two canned goods per ticket. The collected goods will benefit the Grand Forks Salvation Army.
Tickets for the Oct. 15 concert are available in advance at the Chester Fritz Auditorium or via phone at 777-4090. Advance tickets are $12 for general admission, $8 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. Tickets at the door are $15 for general audience, $10 for senior citizens, and $7 for students.
The Grand Forks Master Chorale is supported through grants from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, the Myra Foundation, the City of Grand Forks Regranting Program administered by the North Valley Arts Council, the UND Department of Music through inkind donations, and our many friends and contributors.
