Wanting Memories, Nov. 24th Concert

Itasca Community Chorus is singing with that old-time college choral sound thanks to the hard work of our new director Sam Evans.  Assisted by his lovely "new" wife Lenora, singers are digging in, rehearsing outside the Tuesday evening formal time together, and laughing a lot during our intense rehearsals.

Sunday, Nov. 24th the 45-piece ensemble will perform at the Reif Performing Arts Center at 3:00 pm.  Repertoire includes wonderfully rich text and scores by Eric Whitacre, Matthew Coulton, and Paul Christianson.  Each selection leaves vocalists asking "How Can I Keep from Singing," but my all time favorite is "Wanting Memories." I'm "sitting here wanting memories to teach me to see the beauty of the world through mine own eyes."

Joining the full choir accompanied by Stuart Boehr is the Deer River Senior High Choir.  This will be a great concert to introduce our seasons of thankfulness and holiday joy.

General admission tickets ($8) are available from choir members or at the door.  Student tickets are free courtesy of the Lake Country Power Operation RoundUp grant.
