Classic Chorale to feature soloist Michelle at weekend 'Seasons of Spring' concerts

Charmin Michelle

The seasoned singers of the Park Rapids Classic Chorale, under the direction of Jim Wheeler, will present "Seasons of Spring" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 27 and 3 p.m. Sunday, April 29 at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Park Rapids.

The 45-member chorale will be accompanied by instruments for several selections. Charmin Michelle from Minneapolis will be a guest soloist.

Michelle began touring internationally in 1986 and has performed at jazz festivals throughout Europe.

"She's a savvy songstress and, while putting her own imprint on a melody, is always respectful of those who first inhabited it," according to a Star Tribune review.

This is Michelle's fourth appearance in Park Rapids, having been a guest soloist with the Park Rapids Community Band and performing at Hubbard United Methodist Church and with Golden String in a Heartland Concert program.

The first half of the "Seasons of Spring" concert will keep the Easter spirit alive. The second half will focus on the celebration of love.

Refreshments follow each concert.
