We are very excited to roll out our new website: www.mnmormonchorale.org You will find that it is much easier to navigate and it’s filled with up-to-date information. We are so grateful to Joe Roushar and Randy for all their work to build it….as well as staff and board members who provided the information (special shout-out to Sarah Johnson for her amazing graphics). There are still some updates and fixes that need to be made and we will keep you updated as they become available.

Easter 2013 – “Lamb of God”

We are excited to announce that the Minnesota Mormon Chorale & Orchestra will again be performing the beautiful Easter oratorio Lamb of God by Rob Gardner, on Sat. March 23 & Sun. March 24th, 2013. The oratorio features the choir & orchestra, 13 vocal soloists, 1 cello soloist, and 2 narrators. The oratorio not only tells the Easter story of the final days of the Savior’s earthly ministry, but also tells each person’s view of those very special events, from Peter’s denial and real testimony of Jesus to Mary’s understanding of the blessedness of His sacrifice. Jesus Christ is not portrayed by a singer on the stage, instead a cello soloist represents the Savior in the music, helping us feel His presence and spirit throughout. Read more

Lamb of God Concert

Hi all!

We had such a wonderful concert the other night and I just wanted to make sure to thank everyone who helped set up and take down. You took a giant load off of my mind and therefore restored my sanity! Special thanks to Albin for setting up the feed into the primary room. I heard lots of positive feedback about that. Read more

Thirteen soloists bring the music and story to life. Jesus Christ is not portrayed by a singer on the stage, instead a cello soloist represents the Savior in the music, helping us feel His presence and spirit throughout. Read more
