Congratulations to Cotter Choir students Zach Bailey, Julia Charron, Molly Corcoran Sanders, and Josh Forst for being selected to participate in this year’s Dorian Choir Festival at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, on January 11 and 12, 2015. The two-day choral festival is considered the largest mass choir festival of its kind in the country. The students spend two days rehearsing their music with approximately 1,200 to 1,400 other high school singers from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Illinois. The two-day choir festival culminates to the Grand Concert on Monday, January 12, featuring the Dorian Festival Choir, the Luther College Nordic Choir (Luther College top choir), and five selected outstanding soloists. The Grand Concert will be held at the Luther College Center for Faith and Life at 7 p.m. As part of the Dorian Choir Festival, the participating high school student singers will also attend a concert on Sunday evening, January 11, featuring the Luther College “Norsemen” (Luther college freshmen men’s chorus) and “Aurora” (Luther college freshmen women’s chorus) and a guest high school choir.
