Monteverdi Chorale to present spring concert

Metro Wire Staff

The Monteverdi Chorale will resume live, in-person concerts this spring.

“A Concert of American Composers” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 30, at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 600 Wilshire Blvd. in Stevens Point.

A second performance will be at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 1, at Holy Spirit Parish (formerly St. Stanislaus), 2151 Stanley St., also in Stevens Point.

Doors will open 15 minutes before each performance.

The concerts, under the direction of artistic director Cody Miller, will feature a diverse group of American composers including work from Alice Parker and Robert Shaw, Elaine Hagenberg, and Leonard Bernstein.

Tickets are $12 per person and can be purchased online at MonteverdiChorale.org or by calling 920-471-2452.

Due to the cancellation of their “Midwinter Cabaret,” Monteverdi is hosting fundraising socials after each concert. Both events will feature light refreshments and a 50/50 cash raffle. Sunday’s social will feature a silent auction with “high-value baskets” and small group performances that would have been performed at “Cabaret.”

Sunday’s silent auction items will be previewed at Saturday night’s concert and on Monteverdi’s social media channels.

Masks are optional at each venue but will be provided on request. Anyone feeling ill is encouraged to stay home.

Monteverdi Chorale is an auditioned, multi-generational community ensemble dedicated to a high standard of choral performance. The group works to provide area vocalists with the opportunity to perform choral music in a variety of styles, then share it with the community.

For information about auditions or donations, go to the group’s website or contact the executive director, Dani Wyatt, at [email protected].
