One Voice Mixed Chorus: Well-Versed
One Voice Mixed Chorus, Minnesota’s LGBTA chorus, returns to the Ordway for Well-Versed, an evening of choral music, strings, and poetry, conducted by Jane Ramseyer Miller and featuring Well-Strung, New York’s hottest singing string quartet. The New York Times says Well-Strung “brilliantly fuses pop and classical music from Madonna to Beethoven.” The concert includes the world premiere of “Still Standing,” a four-movement composition for One Voice and Well-Strung, created through Healing & Hope Through Song, an artist residency sponsored by the American Composers Forum. Inspired by local LGBTQ youth from RECLAIM, a Twin Cities organization offering support to queer and trans youth, the new choral work features poetry written and recited by Sierra DeMulder, National Poetry Slam Champion, and music by acclaimed Minnesota composer George Maurer. A limited number of $100 tickets include a post-concert reception at Landmark Center and meet and greet with Well-Strung! Don’t miss this one night only event!
