‘Musical Roots' concert tonight!

The North Idaho College Cardinal Chorale and Chamber Singers will present “Musical Roots” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, at First Presbyterian Church at 521 E. Lakeside Ave. in Coeur d’Alene.

This concert celebrates how music can bind us together as a community. It will feature music ranging from American, Russian, Scottish, and Indonesian folk idioms. Of particular interest will be the arrangements of music from the folk movement of the 1960s. Such titles as “This Land is Your Land,” “Jamaica Farewell,” and “Will the Circle be Unbroken” will be featured.

North Idaho College Choral Union consists of the Cardinal Chorale and Chamber Singers. The Choral Union has a long tradition of performing moving performances for audiences in the Inland Northwest and beyond. Both choirs have traveled throughout the United States and North America. Recently, members of both ensembles performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Choirs have also performed in Seattle, San Francisco, and Mexico. Members of the both choirs consist of NIC students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as area community members.

NIC Director of Choirs Max Mendez brings 35 years of experience to the Choral Union. Celebrating more than 10 years at the college, he strives to instill a sense of artistry, quality, beauty, and community service in each performance. Mendez is active in area choral music and also serves as a clinician, performer, and guest conductor throughout the Northwest.

The concert is free and open to everyone.
