Mill City Singers 2017 Recap (and Exciting News for 2018!)

Article by Claudia Kittock

It has been quite a year for the Mill City Singers. Our roster has swollen to 199 singers, and we are averaging 49 singers/rehearsal. The Guthrie has been kind enough to host all of our rehearsals this year and we are so very grateful to them.

Besides the joy of rehearsing with each other, we have shared a number of performances together. We sang Take Me Out to the Ballgame at a Minnesota Twins game, we performed in 2 concerts at the Capri Theater, the Loring Park Music Festival, and caroled up and down 2nd Street for Winterfest. This group loves a party and we have shared great times together throughout 2017. All that is needed to have a party is to open the door . . . everything else follows.

During 2017 we were asked to become community partners with the Minnesota Orchestra and will be singing at Orchestra Hall in March, 2018. More details will be shared as they develop. We are also incredibly excited to be performing at a Super Bowl event at Westminster Presbyterian Church on January 28, 2-3pm. It's an Interfaith Gathering called Bold Hope in the North that will showcase Minnesota’s national leadership in multi-faith dialogue and cooperation. It will raise money to prevent homelessness through the interfaith Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness Emergency Rental Assistance Program. You won’t want to miss this event!
