Join Classical MPR for Bring the Sing in Northfield on Nov. 9

Bring the Sing-STP 07

On Friday, Nov. 9, Classical MPR will host its next Bring the Sing community choral event in a place renowned for singing, St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn.

The event will draw together two core ensembles, St. Paul-based One Voice Mixed Chorus and Faribault-based Shattuck-St. Mary's Chamber Choir, as well as members of the St. Olaf, Carleton, Northfield, Faribault, and Rice County communities — along with anyone else who loves to sing.

The event is free and open to the public. The ability to read music is not necessary, and all are welcome. Find more information and a link to the songbook on Classical MPR.
