A Bluegrass Spectacular with Monroe Crossing (St Andrew UMC)
A Bluegrass Spectacular with Monroe Crossing
Sponsored by Plano Civic Chorus
Musical worlds collide when the Plano Civic Chorus joins forces with Monroe Crossing for a musical event not to be missed! This is a rare opportunity for lovers of choral music to experience the sounds of bluegrass and for bluegrass fans to hear the beauty of choral singing! The concert will highlight a recent work by composer Carol Barnett entitled The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass. The concert will also feature Shawn Kirchner’s Heavenly Home: Three American Songs. Kirchner captures the essence of bluegrass in his choral arrangements and his music will complement the unique bluegrass stylings of Monroe Crossing.
Monroe Crossing, named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” continues to dazzle audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their superb musicianship and on-stage rapport have entertained audiences across the United States, Canada and Europe. Based in the twin cities of Minnesota, Monroe Crossing plays an average of 150 shows a year in intimate rooms, at major venues and outdoor festivals. They are favorites among bluegrass connoisseurs and non-bluegrass audiences alike.
