Dear Supporters of the Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists,
We are busy preparing for our 2022-23 season which will feature some of the most exciting choral music we’ve presented in recent memory, and you aren’t going to want to miss a single measure of music, I assure you! This summer’s round of auditions was very strong, and we are pleased to welcome a roster of nearly 70 singers to our organization this fall. There are many familiar faces and many new ones for you to get to meet, see, and hear throughout this season.
The fun will start with our annual community sing event, Bring the Sing, on Tuesday, August 16 from 7-8 pm at Broadway Square in the heart of downtown Fargo. We’re pleased to be partnering with Minnesota Public Radio for this evening of songs that all will love to sing!
Our October concert, My Spirit Sang All Day is my thank-you to the singers who have endured recent years of COVID choir (singing with masks, taking a hiatus, etc.) as we present a concert filled with singer favorites as selected by members of the choir.
In January we will present Mozart and Minnesota which will feature a performance of Mozart’s beloved Coronation Mass alongside music by living Minnesota composers Jake Runestad, Emily Feld, and Jocelyn Hagen.
We’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day with our annual fundraising gala, A Singing Valentine, which will include libations, a dinner, a concert of love songs, and an auction to benefit the mission of FMCA.
Our season will conclude in April with a program of music written by composers who were also strongly engaged in music education work called Paper to Podium, including René Clausen, Edwin Fissinger, Paul J. Christiansen, Johannes Brahms, Giselle Wyers, Brandon Waddles, and more. For the April program, I will be delighted to share the podium with Isaac Lovdahl, himself a composing conductor!
The art we share isn’t quite as rewarding for us if you aren’t in the audience to hear these pieces come to life. You all matter to us a great deal, so we hope to see you at our concerts this season.
Artistic Director and Conductor
