The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Music Department extends a warm invitation to a free, choral masterworks concert featuring the music of JS Bach, Johannes Brahms and Randol Bass:

Tuesday, Dec.  11
7:30 p.m.
Coon Rapids Campus Performing Arts Center

Friday, Dec. 14
7:30 p.m.
Cambridge-Isanti High School

Both concerts combine the Cambridge Campus Concert Choir, the Coon Rapids Campus Concert Choir, and the Chorale on one stage. The Chamber Singers Ensemble will open the concert. An orchestra of the college's talented faculty and other professional musicians from all over the Twin Cities will accompany the choirs.

The music will take the audience on a roller coaster ride. Bach's “Weihnachts Oratorium” is a prime example of the exuberant nature of the high baroque.  “Schicksalslied” by Brahms takes the listener from the heavenly opening to the depths of despair and back again. Bass' “Symphony of Carols” is a lush medley with something for everyone, and it includes an audience sing-along at the end.

“It has been my joy and privilege to work with these singers this semester,” says Choral Director, Randy Buikema. “I've done three sabbatical replacements at other institutions and the students at Anoka-Ramsey are my favorite.  I'm challenged and inspired by how open, friendly and hardworking they are.”
