Minnesota Valley Chorale Concerts MVC 40 Featuring In Glory Everlasting by David Von Kampen

Join the Chorale as it performs many of its favorite pieces from the last 40 years of song. Works include O Day Full of Grace by F. Melius Christiansen, The Seal Lullaby by Eric Whitacre, Randall Thompson’s Alleluia and Have Ye Not Heard/Ye Shall Have a Song.

Additionally, the Chorale is proud to present music from local composers Eric Barnum (The Lady in the Water) and David Dickau (O, My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose).

The Chorale would also like to thank its supporters for contributing to the development of a new work especially for the 40th anniversary.  In Glory Everlasting is a four-movement work by composer David Von Kampen. We are excited to present its world premiere at our concerts.
