St. Paul, Minn. —
OK, choral music fans it's time to test your music mettle! Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, Classical MPR's Choral Stream producer, has put together this Choral Geek Quiz; two quizzes, in fact. Try both levels and see how much you know about choral music.
Here's something interesting: Tesfa used to live in Orlando, Fla., home of Epcot Center. At Epcot, Tesfa informs us, there is a theme-park ride that has two levels: the "green level" is fun and exciting, but designed to cater to all comers; the "orange level" is fast and furious and only for those with steely nerves!
Following that model, Tesfa has designed two quizzes, a "green" and an "orange" level. Whether you try one or both, have fun, and please keep your safety belt fastened at all times.
When you're finished with the quiz, feel free to share your score in the comments section below.
Tesfa says: "If you get a Perfect Score on GREEN and ORANGE Choral Experience (8 out of 8), tweet me @tesfawon that you scored a perfect score on both experiences and I will create an epic, original title for you to hold and claim for all eternity!"
