The Red Wing Singers present their annual concert Saturday, March 24. This year’s concert, “Circle of Life,” takes the audience on a journey of the many phases of life as we grow.
Many different styles of music will be presented from pop — from the Beatles’ “When I'm 64” through Five for Fighting’s “100 Years” — to classical.
Many soloists are featured including John Bergquist “Let Them Be Little,” Leslie Hakala “In My Own Little Corner” from Cinderella, Jim Bowen “My Way,” Jessica Klos “The Well,” Larry Clark “And So It Goes,”
and Chris Gutting “Sunrise, Sunset” from the Fiddler on the Roof.
Highlights of the concert include Esther Gullixson singing her own composition, a lullaby entitled “Lillian Rose;” “Letter From a Girl to the World” — a unique piece that tackles the big issues of growing up and will feature daughters of members Elizabeth Bergquist, Eva Engberg, Ella Sutherland and Madeline Sutherland; “Auld Lang Syne,” a beautiful arrangement based on the original Scottish air written by Robert Burns; “Going Home,” a hymn based on Dvorak's New World Symphony; “I Carry Your Heart,” based on the poetry of E.E. Cummings, written by Minnesota composer David Dickau and “Turn the World Around,” a Harry Belefonte piece that reminds us “ah, so is life.”
