Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota to perform April 29 in Pequot Lakes

20th anniversary Spring Concert Series theme is “How Can We Keep From Singing?"

Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota

PEQUOT LAKES — The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota will continue its 20th anniversary Spring Concert Series at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, in the Pequot Lakes High School auditorium, part of the Greater Lakes Area Performing Arts 2021-22 Concert Series.

The series theme, “How Can We Keep From Singing?,” is taken from the title of a book by Minnesota author Joan Oliver Goldsmith and is based on the old hymn, “How Can I Keep from Singing?” The hymn’s text speaks to the power of music and especially music that is sung.

Goldsmith’s book is an exploration of why more than 20 million Americans who sing in community choirs choose to volunteer in group singing. Goldsmith will be part of the concert series as a narrator, reading portions of her book to coincide with the musical selections.

The Minneapolis space speaks well for Minnesota. "We’re much more open and experimental than I think the country sometimes gives us credit for," artist Venus DeMars said.

In addition to Goldsmith, the Legacy’s concert series will feature soloists from the chorale and several area instrumentalists, including music students from Central Lakes College and members of the Heartland Symphony Orchestra.

The 20th anniversary spring concerts will also recognize veteran singers, past board members and managers, inaugural season sponsors, audiences who have supported the chorale, and Sarah Aamot, the chorale’s founder and artistic director, who will retire this year.


Tickets are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and $10 for students, and can be purchased at . For more information, visit or contact Anne McMahon at or at 218-270-8212.

The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota Spring Concert Series is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
