‘Homeward Bound’ explores meaning of home

The word “home” has meaning to us all, especially during the holidays.

Through songs and spoken stories, two world classes vocal ensembles are coming together this holiday season to explore and celebrate the meaning “home” has for all of us.

The Great Northern Union and City of Lakes choruses will jointly perform “Homeward Bound” on Dec. 12-13 at the Hopkins High School Auditorium.

Each group will perform old favorites and new standards, all in the exciting, four-part, a cappella harmony for which both groups are known. In addition, the two choruses will perform several numbers jointly, including spectacular eight-part renditions of “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” and “Joy To The World” as well as an audience sing-along of the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah.

“We’re really excited to be performing with City of Lakes this year,” said GNU President Kirk Lindberg. “They are one the region’s premiere women’s a cappella chorus and a perennial international medalist. They bring a lot of energy, excitement and class to the stage.”
