This Sunday, six local choral ensembles, along with VocalEssence, join forces for a concert titled, "Everybody Sing!" at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis.

Kantorei, Mangum Chorum, the Minnesota Chorale, the National Lutheran Choir, The Singers and the Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus each sing a portion of the concert on their own, but will also be a part of a mass choir of over 500 voices in a world premiere of a work composed by Dominick Argento.

Classical Minnesota Public Radio's John Birge spoke with Argento and Brunelle about this concert, the new work and the college days.
