The second annual It's Good to Sing Concert hosted by the Harmony Engineers and supported by the A Cappella Alumni Association and Community Education will take place March 10.
This event at Tornstrom Auditorium at Washington Middle School in Brainerd will provide an opportunity for area singers to re-live their high school choir experience while supporting vocal music scholarship.
Mike Smith, Brainerd High School choir director, will conduct a workshop in the afternoon with interested community members who have a desire to participate in a choir performance.
The first year of the event, it drew 110 participants.
To round out the evening event, the Harmony Engineers have invited various area singing organizations to participate in this event dedicated to raising funds for vocal music scholarships for students in the choir at Brainerd High School.
The Harmony Engineers -- Jody Crowe, Steve Schaitberger, Bob Nelson, Peter Johnson and Todd Holman -- will be featured in the It's Good to Sing Concert. They have been singing regionally and across the state over the last three years and locally have been highlighted in the Rhythm of the Rails show. They entertain audiences with tight harmonies and interesting lyrics.
They have donated their time and talents to the Crow Wing County Radiothon for the Prevention of Child Abuse and other causes in the lakes area. As former high school choir members in Brainerd and other schools, the Harmony Engineers support young people singing and believe students need to see and hear the opportunities they will have for singing following their high school experience.
Area adults interested in participating in the workshop and choir may contact Community Education at 828-5372 and register before Sunday. The workshop will begin at 4 p.m. with the concert at 7:30 p.m. Cost to participate in the workshop is $15; tickets to the concert are $5. Space is limited.
