Saturday, May 18th, 7 to 9 PM at Central Presbyterian Church, Saint Paul
Great Northern Union Chrous and City of Lakes Chorus are together again for another fantastic show of high-energy a capella music. Along with our crowd-pleasing, goosebump-inducing song packages, we welcome two of the most talented barbershop quartets in the world, Instant Classic and GQ!
Founded in 1952, City of Lakes is one of Sweet Adelines International's top ten choruses. City of Lakes is open to women of all ages and backgrounds who share a common passion for close a capella harmony. GNU and City of Lakes are regular collaborators, and both choruses are excited to harmonize together again this spring.
Instant Classic is the Barbershop Harmony Society's 2015 International Quartet Champion, comprised of David Zimmerman (tenor), Theo Hicks (lead), Kohl Kitzmiller (baritone), and Kyle Kitzmiller (bass). They are four good friends with a passion for barbershop harmony, a cappella music, and youth outreach. They perform a variety of music from several decades and styles, including vocal jazz, musical theater, pop, and even R&B!
GQ is an award-winning Sweet Adelines International a cappella and barbershop quartet from Baltimore, Maryland. Their members are Amanda McNutt, Ali Hauger, Katie Gillis and Katie Macdonald, four great friends who have a passion for creating a unique sound spanning a variety of genres and decades.
GQ and Instant Classic have also sung 8-part arranagements together many times, and are planning to bring some of their amazing "very large quartet" harmonies to the GNU stage!
We'll be singing at a new venue this spring. Located at 500 Cedar St, Saint Paul, 55101, Central Presbyterian Church is a spacious performance space in the heart of Saint Paul with easy access via the Green Line LRT as well as I-94 and I-35E. The church is within walking distance of numerous restaurants sure to please any palate, and there is plenty of convenient off-street parking.
