"Made in Minnesota: Choral Music from the Northstar State" is a performance and program that features works by composers that live in Minnesota. Specifically, the program highlights female composers- such as Jocelyn Hagen, Carol Barnett, Abbie Betinis, and Carolyn Jennings, a Northfield resident. Two works in particular highlight a unique and experimental style: "Look Out Above" co-written by Jocelyn Hagen and Dessa- this piece features singing, rap, and body percussion. Second, "Sanctus from the World Beloved: A bluegrass Mass," is a piece that mixes bluegrass and classical choral music featuring banjo, fiddle, guitar, and string bass. These works and more will be performed in Kracum Music Hall this Friday, May 24, at 7 PM.
