Arrowhead Chorale is described by Director Stanley Wold as "an auditioned civic choir based in the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior." The Chorale performs several concert programs annually. Each year, at least one concert is performed outside the Twin Ports area.
The Arrowhead Chorale was originally formed by Paul Fletcher in the mid 1980′s. However, after Fletcher’s departure, the group was inactive for a short period. Members of the group were very enthusiastic about continuing the Chorale, so in 1990, they decided to revive the group. They hired Stanley Wold as the first Artistic Director and the Arrowhead Chorale was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
Singers are auditioned each season to participate in a rigorous series of rehearsals and concerts. A working board works diligently at audience development, funding, and organizational policy.
While the singers of the Chorale are representative of a wide variety of professions, many of them have musical degrees and all have at least collegiate level choral singing experience. All individuals involved in Arrowhead Chorale must be able to perform solo music, pass rhythm-reading and pitch-reading tests, and demonstrate the ability to vary vocal timbres and techniques as required by different choral music for that year.
