Upcoming performances

From Spiritual to Spirituals:
Music of Praise and Hope

Featuring guest soprano Hope Koehler (West Virginia University, American Spiritual Ensemble), the Arrowhead Chorale explores sacred music in a variety of expressions from early chant to Mozart’s majestic Coronation Mass K. 319 to Sanctus from Leonard Bernstein’s Mass. The focus will then shift to the American spiritual, a truly unique and powerful genre described as “breathing the prayer and complaint of souls boiling over with the bitterest anguish.”* Ms. Koehler will join the Chorale with solo and collaborative performances of the music of Moses Hogan, Jester Hairston, and others. This promises to be a memorable and moving musical event in our community.

GLORIA! Perhaps no other word has been set more frequently by composers throughout the ages in writing music celebrating the splendor, brightness, and joy of the holiday season. In our December concerts, the Arrowhead Chorale will present new and traditional settings of Gloria, with carol settings old and new featuring works of Mozart, Wilberg, and – the centerpiece of the concert – John Rutter’s breathtaking Gloria.

The Chorale will collaborate with organ, brass, orchestra, and the Strikepoint Handbell Ensemble to fill our new concert home, First Lutheran Church of Duluth, with the glorious sounds of Christmas

Meet the Chorale! 

Singing has always been a creative outlet for Jane Killough, from performing in church community groups to Carnegie Hall! Killough graduated from Carleton College with a major in biology, studying voice and singing during her time there. She joined Arrowhead Chorale during our first season in 1988 and has sung with us every season since. Killough says she keeps singing because it keeps her sane, so it is no surprise that one of her favorites is “How Can I Keep from Singing?“!
