Welcome spring with Concert Band, Chamber Chorale!



The M State Band and Chamber Choir will join in celebrating the season with their annual Spring Concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 18 at Legacy Hall.

The concert, on the Fergus Falls campus and featuring “songs of history and hope,” will also include a special virtual performance by the M State’s Concert Choir.

Tickets are free, but seats for the concert are limited due to pandemic restrictions. Limited tickets are available and can be booked by calling or emailing Marci King at [email protected] or 218.736.1600. To enjoy the concert virtually, visit Minnesota.edu/mstatetv.

“The concert will feature music of all ages, from Thomas Tallis to Eric Whitacre,” said Laura Quaintance, director of the M State Choir. Among the numbers, there will be “We Shall Rise”, a collaborative piece by the Concert Band and Chamber Chorale.

The Concert Band, which will perform a variety of musical styles from various composers and eras, is conducted by Jim Iverson.

Tickets may also be available at the gates, which will open at 1:45 p.m. (15 minutes before the start of the event).

The M State Concert Band and Chamber Chorale rehearsed in person in Legacy Hall (to accommodate social distancing precautions) during the spring semester, although Quaintance said a hybrid rehearsal option was available for performers. .

“We are delighted to be returning to campus after a one-year absence, and look forward to seeing more in the future! ” she said.
