VocalEssence: Radio Hour
  • VocalEssence Chorus & Ensemble Singers
  • Christina Baldwin, actor
  • Nikki Swoboda, director
  • Philip Brunelle, conductor

Did you know that a radio could transport you to a different universe? With VocalEssence, anything is possible.

Jake Heggie, one of the world’s most prominent composers of dramatic vocal music and composer of the opera Dead Man Walking, along with librettist Gene Scheer, have created a new choral opera titled The Radio Hour which crosses Alice in Wonderland with the golden age of radio in a magical program about the power of singing to shape and give meaning to our lives. The precursor to the opera will include a swinging salute to radio legend Fred Waring, “The Man Who Taught America How to Sing,” and other radio choral favorites, all on the home stage of A Prairie Home Companion.

Concert Activities
Concert Conversations with composer Jake Heggie at 7 pm on Saturday and 3 pm on Sunday.
