"Minnesota has been blessed with a tradition of excellent choral performance AND choral composition.  Building on the foundations laid by F Melius Christiansen, Dominick Argento, Stephen Paulus and Libby Larsen and many others, a richly talented and diverse body of contemporary Minnesota-based composers are creating beautiful new music for choir.  Choral Arts Ensemble will feature many of these vibrant and eloquent voices, both in video clips of the composers talking about their craft, and in the moving artistry of their music itself.  Familiar MPR music host Steve Staruch will help us by conducting these video interviews, and will be on hand at the Rochester concert to add a few stories, details, and insights with his customary humor, warmth, and flare."
