Great River Chorale presents an annual concert series that includes highly anticipated holiday concerts each December, musical collaborations with guest artists from across the state and region, and free outreach concerts dedicated to enriching the wider community. In June 2013 the ensemble was named the principal choral partner of the St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble has been featured on Classical Minnesota Public Radio’s Regional Spotlight and on MPR’s Taste of the Holiday’s 2013 compilation CD.
