The NDSU Concert Choir, under the direction of Jo Ann Miller, University Distinguished Professor, was featured on the Minnesota Public Radio Regional Spotlight program July 5. Fresh off of its recent first place finish for mixed choir in the eighth International Choir Competition in Zadar, Croatia, the choir performed “Chanson on ‘Dessus le Marché D’Arras’” by Orlando di Lasso, “When Music Sounds” by Nancy Hill Cobb and “Follow the Drinking Gourd” arranged by Allen Koepke. “When Music Sounds” was the winner of the 2011 Edwin Fissinger Choral Composition, an annual contest sponsored by NDSU Music.
The Concert Choir tours Europe every four years, most recently in the spring of 2012.
