Minnesota Sings

The American Choral Directors Association, Minnesota chapter (ACDA-MN), is presenting a state-wide choral sing-a-long on November 10, 2012 [corrected date]. You can get your choir invovled by applying here (deadline is October 1, 2012). Locations are spread out across Minnesota, so you should be able to find a convenient spot to showcase your group.

According to the ACDA-MN website, the goal is to showcase choirs "of any size, age, or ability representing school, community and faith-based organizations." This event is part of the organization's 50th anniversary year.

It's the y'all come of choral singing.

If you've ever visited the famous Central Cemetery in Vienna, you know that many great musicians are buried there, in close proximity.

Now there's a news story that someone may have broken into the graves of Brahms and Johann Strauss....and stolen their teeth.

Details here.
