The Singers to premiere work by Dr. O’Shea

The Twin Cities-based choral ensemble, “The Singers,” will perform in Winona as part of its 10th anniversary legacy tour.

The group will perform music by Mortin Lauridsen and Benjamin Britten, as well as beloved American folk songs and spirituals. The event will also include the premiere of a work by Dr. Patrick O’Shea (Music Department) commemorating the lives lost in the tragic school shooting in Connecticut.

Under the direction of Matthew Culloton, The Singers will perform at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, at Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, 1155 W. Wabasha St. The concert is free and is funded, in part, by Minnesota arts and cultural heritage fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the Legacy Amendment vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008.

Tickets are available at the SMU Box Office, Ext. 1715, Monday through Friday or at the door.
