2022 Spring and Summer concerts were a success!
The Bloomington Chorale was back in action at the Bloomington Center for the Arts with their “Everything’s Coming up Roses” concert performed on May 20th and 21st. The concert included a variety of spring and summer themed music that was fun to sing and enjoyable to hear. They also performed their “Slice of Summer” mini concerts at the Bloomington Farmers Market on June 11 and the Normandale Lake Bandshell on June 14 as part of the Bloomington Arts in the Park program.
The Bloomington Chorale went Virtual for the Spring of 2021
During the COVID19 pandemic, we did take some time off but we also tried something new. Since we were not able to sing together in a physical location, we put together a few pieces virtually, with the help of the directors from our sister group, the NOTEable Singers. We are excited to share our experience with you, starting with these videos.
