ST. PAUL, Minn. — Saint Cloud boasts many things: a university, two wineries, superb fishing and, of course, the Great River Chorale!

On this week's Regional Spotlight, hear the 45 singers of the Great River Chorale sing American spirituals with just the right combination of earthiness and exultation. The Chorale is lead by artisic director Mary Kay Geston, and this performance was taken from a concert this past May.

Hear Regional Spotlight every Thursday in the 3 p.m. hour on Classical MPR stations across Minnesota.
