Sing, sing a song.

I have always liked choirs. It’s something about many voices singing together – it never fails to gives me the good kind of chills. I particularly like childrens’ choirs or any choir that makes extensive use of rhythm and/or percussion in addition to voice. That leads me to be particularly fond of music with African origins and not so big on the “classical” style (or is it called Baroque?).

I hope to go to some of these concerts – but he prohibitive cost to attend these may stop me as you need to pay to be a “delegate” (some are free). Here are some I am going to try to make:

Here is a complete schedule.

If you’re into that sort of thing and in Minneapolis between August 3 and 10th you can check out the Sixth World Symposium on Choral Music
