There’s nothing better than hearing the voices of children singing great American classics in harmony. We got to experience that this morning on the show as The Kennedy Colts Honor Choir paid us a visit and graced us with a live performance.

This Sunday, the group of elementary and middle school students from St. Joseph’s Kennedy Community School will fill the air with their renditions of songs we all know. They’re part of a larger concert featuring the Great River Chorale, a forty-five voice  St. Cloud-based community choir.

They’ll present a rousing celebration of American music during their Great American Sing Concert this Sunday at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.  Appearing with them will be two special guest choirs; The Kennedy Colts Honor Choir, and The Mustang Choir from Meadowvale Elementary School in Elk River.

The concert features famous folk-songs such as Shenandoah and Cindy, traditional African-American spirituals like Ezekiel Saw de Wheel and Daniel, Daniel, plus songs by iconic American composers Aaron Copland, Stephen Foster, and Charles Ives. Each of the student honor choirs will present solo sets in the concert and will join together on partner songs in addition to singing with Great River Chorale. When you attend, be prepared to sing-along during a couple of the tunes.

In addition to the kids, our guests this morning were Great River Chorale artistic director and conductor Mary Kay Geston and Debbie Ferrel the group’s publicist and business manager. Kristen Mattick, director of The Kennedy Colts Honor Choir led the kids in song.


The Great American Sing Concert is Sunday, May 5 at 4:00 p.m. at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for 65 and older, $5 for students, and $40 for families from one household (two adults and two or more children). Tickets will be available at the door and all seats are general admission. For more information call 320-515-4472 or visit the Great River Chorale website.
