Minot Chamber Chorale presents ‘We Walk Together’

The Minot Chamber Chorale will present “We Walk Together,” a concert of gospel favorites and American folk tunes, including the world premiere of “How Can I Keep From Singing,” an arrangement by Emerson Eads on Sunday, May 1, at 3 p.m. in Our Redeemer’s Church. Eads is artistic director of the group.

Soloists will be Monica Sorgen Padgett and Martha Fix, both sopranos, and Erik Anderson, tenor saxophone.

“While it has been anything but a normal season, we are singing together. We’ve faced pandemic, incredible political turmoil that has spilled into our families and even into our singing ranks. But the singing has reminded us that despite the differences, we remain in need of each other,” said Eads. He said they hope the concert will remind people “of the joy that is found in walking together, and that when we ‘Walk Together,’ we are stronger.”

Ben Elder, music teacher at South Prairie School, who sings in the bass section, has assisted Eads when he has been away by rehearsing the group.

“I’m so grateful to him for his musicianship and passion, which has benefited not just the Minot Chamber Chorale but also the greater area of Ward County with his good work at South Prairie,” Eads said.

As is customary with the group’s spring concert, there will be an ice cream social immediately following. The concert and the ice cream are free.
