(KTIV) – A choir from South Dakota with Siouxland ties is bringing a big sound to Sioux City Friday night.
The South Dakota Chorale will be performing The Rachmaninoff Vespers at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Cathedral of the Epiphany. Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children and can be purchased at the door.
The South Dakota Chorale was nominated for a 2018 Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance for its recording, Tyberg Masses.
The group was also nominated for Best Surround Sound Album, Best Engineered Album-Classical, and part of the Producer of the Year-Classical nomination in collaboration with Sound Mirror in Boston.
Based out of Sioux Falls, the chorale has been together for eight years.
Heath Weber, of Morningside College and Chorale Board President, spoke with KTIV’s Stella Daskalakis about the collaborative network of musicians that makes up the group, and about their upcoming performance in Siouxland.
“About 50 percent of the chorale are local singers, we have some from here (in Sioux City), others from the Sioux Center area, we obviously have a lot from Sioux Falls and the Minneapolis area, and then we bring in people from all over the country,” said Weber. “Just some phenomenal singers that makes this group really special.”
