Sing Your Way Home

Itasca Community Chorus invites all serious singers to join the choir Tuesday, Sept. 2 6:15 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church in Grand Rapids, MN.

Artistic Director Sam Evans reminds, "Never louder than beautiful!"

Step out of your comfort zone (or maybe into it)!  Join a great group of singers for a lot of fun and concentrated singing as Itasca Community Chorus strives to produce the best choral music available. If you’re serious about making beautiful sound, camaraderie and have time, Itasca Community Chorus resumes rehearsals Tuesday evening, September 2 at Zion Lutheran Church in Grand Rapids. 

Committed to making quality choral music accessible to all, Itasca Community Choir is open to all serious singers, teenage through adult.  Artistic Director Sam Evans, Concordia Moorhead music graduate, and accompanist Stuart Boehr bring their rich imaginations and considerable expert experience to helping each singer do his/her best.  Soloists are generally chosen from within the choir and rank amateurs sing next to seasoned professionals.

The fall semester features a combination of familiar and new Christmas selections.  Google Morten Lauridsen’s  Oh Magnum Mysterium for a taste of how you too could sound in concert with Itasca Community Chorus.  At the other end of the spectrum is Ben Allaway’s  “Freedom Come”  and,  of course,  in between are the familiar Christmas melodies set in new and refreshing choral arrangements. 
Collaborating in concert with Itasca Community Chorus on Nov. 30 at the Reif is the Itasca Brass. 

Spring semester focuses on Vaughn Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem , the selection Itasca Community Chorus members will sing in collaboration with other choirs from around the nation at Carnegie Hall in New York City, April 2015.  You too could sing on the Carnegies stage next spring. Details and itinerary are available from artistic director Sam Evans at 

Still thinking it through?  If you missed Prayer of the Children or Wanting Memories last year, contact artistic director Sam Evans or call ICTV to determine when the performances will air again.  

Better yet begin singing with Itasca Community Chorus Tuesday evening, Sept. 2 from 6:15-8:30 at Zion Lutheran Church, 2901 Highway 169S, Grand Rapids, MN.
