Join M State choirs for an 'Awakening'

November 23, 2021

The M State Music Department invites music lovers to an “Awakening” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, in Legacy Hall on the college’s Fergus Falls campus.

The choral concert will feature members of the M State Concert Choir, Voice Ensemble and Chamber Chorale performing what choral director Laura Odden Quaintance describes as songs of hope, connection, overcoming fear and finding refuge in music.

“This semester, singers have put their soul into our music and felt the emotional connection that has come with it. For many of these songs, the poetry spoke to our strong need for music in our lives, the joy and hope in life that we find in music, and the realization of just how much we love rehearsing together,” Quaintance said. “With songs by Brahms, Hagenberg, Handel, Jenkins, Ticheli, Whitacre and others, we hope our audience will enjoy the journey through these pieces as much as we have.”

The doors open at 1:30 p.m., and the concert is free and open to the public. Masks are required for all visitors to campus.
