Great River Chorale is a 50-voice auditioned, adult community choir based in St. Cloud, Minnesota, whose members range in age from 25 to 75 and live in communities across central Minnesota. The choir has distinguished itself through its commitment to artistic excellence, collaborations with local and regional artists, and commissioning new music from Minnesota composers such as René Clausen, Timothy Takach, David Dickau and Laura Caviani. Great River Chorale was the only choir outside the Minneapolis-Saint Pault metro area selected to perform virtually in Chorus America’s 2021 National Conference, and in 2015 was one of ten Minnesota choirs to headline the Northern Voice Festival in the Twin Cities. Great River Chorale has been selected four times (in 2019, ‘17, ‘15 and ‘13) for inclusion on Classical Minnesota Public Radio’s “Taste of the Holidays” CD featuring “Minnesota’s best regional ensembles.”
This spring we celebrate our twentieth anniversary with a concert featuring grand music for chorus and organ. We will be joined by virtuoso concert organist Dr. Stephen Hamilton, Minister of Music Emeritus at New York City’s Church of the Holy Trinity (Episcopal). The program includes world premieres of two new pieces by composer-in-residence René Clausen and music by Kim André Arnesen, Jonathan Dove, Gabriel Fauré and Ralph Vaughan Williams, among others. Join us in the beautiful Abbey Church at Saint John’s University for this sparkling anniversary concert.
