St. Paul, Minn. — Singing in a choir is about love, love of the music, love of singing "together," and loving the audience. The Choral Arts Ensemble from Rochester demonstrate why they are one of the best choirs in the region from a performance given earlier this season. The sound the ensemble produces in two works by Handel and Mozart is full and round and joy filled. It is a pleasure to feature the Choral Arts Ensemble and director Michael Culloton in this week's Regional Spotlight.
