For the second year, the Bismarck Sings choral event will feature 11 singing groups from local high schools, colleges, the Bismarck-Mandan Civic Chorus, Central Dakota Children’s Choir – Jubilate, Surprise Church Band, and Inspiraré, a professional vocal ensemble.
Bismarck State College has coordinated the second annual Bismarck Sings concert, which takes place Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Bismarck Event Center.
Performing with their directors are concert choirs from Bismarck’s four high schools – Century, Bismarck High, Legacy, and St. Mary’s Central – and Mandan High School.
The University of Mary Concert Choir Men and Vocal Jazz will perform, along with BSC’s Concert Choir, Chamber Singers, Women’s Ensemble and Men’s Ensemble.
Andrew Miller, BSC’s choral director, has collaborated with 10 chorus conductors to produce the program of classical, ethnic, sacred and contemporary works sung by approximately 750 young people and adults. Miller will direct a mass chorus in his own composition, “Cantate Domino,” as a finale to the concert.
