VocalEssence Ensemble Singers, together with Don Shelby (former WCCO news anchor) as Mark Twain, and folk fiddler Sara Pajunen, celebrate life on the Mississippi River. Through choral music and the spoken word, VocalEssence takes listeners on a musical journey of the past and present featuring choral masterpieces, favorite folk-songs, traditional spirituals, and Americana—all paired with the words of Mark Twain.
