The Northern Michigan Chorale returns to the Great Lakes Center for the Arts to perform their holiday concerts, “SING JOY!” There are two performances on Saturday, November 23rd, both afternoon and evening, and one afternoon concert on Sunday, the 24th.
Music selections include lively tunes like Stephen Foster’s “Some Folks Love the Holidays” to Rogers and Hammerstein’s moving “You’ll never Walk Alone.” Several carol arrangements by Robert Shaw will also add to the enjoyment for the whole family. This concert, with the many holiday songs, will help to bring in the holiday season filled with music.
“We love performing at the new Center for the Arts in Bay Harbor and thrilled to sing in that wonderful performance space for the third time, explains Julie Pierpont, Music Director of the Chorale.” Joining the Chorale in concert will be the talented Little
Traverse Youth Choir, under the direction of Levin Wells. Julie shares that “together, the groups bring 100 singers from all over Northern Michigan, uniting to create a rich and glorious blend of voices.”
The Chorale is a community chorus, with members of all ages who come from our northern Michigan region. As a member, singers become part of a large choral group. Auditions are not necessary to join the Chorale. The full chorus, plus small ensembles and soloists will bring the music to life.
