Mill City Singers Perform with the MacPhail Community Youth Choir at Orchestra Hall

Article by Claudia Kittock, photos by Ryan Ojard

On March 9th and 10th, the Mill City Singers performed a 45 minute concert in the Atrium at Orchestra Hall.  Asked to be part of the Community Partnership program with Minnesota Orchestra, the singers were led by J.D. Steele and Fred Steele. The MacPhail Community Youth Choir joined the Singers at the performance.

Each of the performances were standing room only, and were enthusiastically received. J.D.’s magic includes involving the audience, and there were a number of songs with members of the audience singing, clapping, and moving along with the Singers.

Community Partners also receive tickets to an Orchestra performance. Each of the Singers was able to attend and enjoy the Pink Martini concert.

It was two nights of magic for the Mill City Singers. Does this sound like fun? It is! The Singers are open to all, free of charge, and require only a love of singing and a heart ready to sing about hope and community. If interested, please contact Claudia Kittock at
