The College of St. Scholastica’s acclaimed Bella Voce and Chamber Choir are thrilled to announce two upcoming performances as part of their annual choir tour. As part of the tour, they will visit six high schools and participate in an exchange with the choir programs.

“Our students have been working very hard on our tour program, and we are excited to share that with high schoolers from around the region,” said Dr. Richard Carrick, director of Choral Activities at St. Scholastica. “We also have many alumni and families that are in the Twin Cities and Chicago metros, and we are thrilled to have the chance to bring this music to them.”

St. Scholastica alumni, as well as the general public, are invited to hear these remarkable choirs perform in the Twin Cities and Chicago, IL. These performances are free and open to the public.

The performances

The concert will include music from as early as the 16th century to as modern as 2023, and explore the various aspects of love, passion and beautiful poetry.

The St. Paul, MN concert will take place this Friday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. at Hamline Church. The choirs will then travel to Chicago, IL for a performance at St. Paul and the Redeemer Church on Saturday, March 9, at 7:30 p.m.
