The community is invited to the inaugural Valéncia Chorale concert on Thursday, November 21, at 7 p.m. in the Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, 1155 West Wabasha Street. Comprised of singers from the Winona area, the Valéncia Chorale is a mixed community choir directed by Dr. Patrick O’Shea. They explore music of a wide range of periods and genres.
Since the Valéncia Chorale was formed in September, more than 40 adults of all ages have been gathering weekly to join in song and enjoy the social, emotional, and musical benefits of preparing for their debut concert.
The audience will enjoy familiar and new pieces, including Randall Thompson’s “From Frostiana,” which adapts Robert Frost’s poems in beautiful choral arrangements; old American songs by Aaron Copland; and Scottish folk songs.
Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, November 14, and are $10 for adults and $5 for students. They can be purchased at the Valéncia Arts Center, 1164 West 10th Street, or one-hour prior to the performance at Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels. Payment may be made in cash or check only.
