Jan. 11: VikeSing Finale Concert
Listen to choral students in grades 9-12 following their participation in the 2014 VikeSing Festival in a Finale Concert at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Sioux Falls.
Tickets are $5 and are available at www.augietickets.com.
The first-ever VikeSing Festival, set for January 10-11, is designed to offer high school students and conductors a choral music experience that is fulfilling and educational.
Festival participants will rehearse together for two days in a massed choir that will focus on vocal technique, ensemble awareness, and musical expression, all in preparation for the choir’s performance at the grand finale concert on Saturday afternoon. Also appearing in the closing concert will be The Augustana Choir and The O’Gorman High School Concert Choir from Sioux Falls, under the direction of Cathy Britton.
Augustana faculty members Dr. Paul Nesheim, Dr. Russell Svenningsen and Dr. Lisa Grevlos will conduct the festival choir and will also collaborate to present a brief workshop to directors on a topic of interest.
