Music of Praise and Hope

FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH
FRIDAY, March 22, 2024 | 7:30 PM
SATURDAY, March 23, 2024 | 3 PM

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.    

*Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave¸ 1845

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

With the mission of engaging and inspiring all individuals throughout the region through choral music, the Arrowhead Chorale is offering a new ticket sponsorship program. In the hopes of sharing our performances with those who may not be able to afford tickets, supporters of this program are able to purchase additional tickets to be available for those who wish to enjoy any of our upcoming performances but who do not have the funds. They say music uplifts the soul, and our goal is for our Angel Ticket program to do just that. 

If you are purchasing concert tickets and would like to participate, simply add an Angel Ticket to your order. 

If you would like to enjoy one of our concerts by using an Angel Ticket, stop by Will Call the evening of the event.

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?“!
