The Valéncia Chorale is a mixed community choir comprised of singers from the Winona area. Under the direction of Dr. Patrick O’Shea, the Valéncia Chorale explores music of a wide range of periods and genres. The very first concert will be in the beautiful Chapel of St. Mary of the Angels (1155 W. Wabasha, Winona, MN) on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 7 pm.

The formation of the Valéncia Chorale was in response to a recent void in our community of a mixed voice (male & female) secular adult choir. Since September over 40 adults of all ages have been gathering weekly to join in song while reaping the social, emotional, and musical benefits as they prepare for their inaugural concert. The audience will enjoy familiar and new pieces including Fostiana, several of Copland’s Old American Songs, and Three Scottish Folksongs arranged by Mack Wilberg.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased beginning Nov. 18 in the MCA office located inside the Valencia Arts Center at 11 64 W. 10th Street or one-hour prior to the performance at Capel of St. Mary of the Angels. Cash or Check only. Handicapped seating is available. For more information call: 507-453-5500 or email: mca@smumn.edu.
