2019 Spring Concerts

Nordic Voices

Evening Concert
Friday, February 8, 2019 7:30 p.m., The Great Hall

Nordic Voices is a six-voice a cappella group that has been making waves not only in Scandinavia, but in places as far afield as South Africa, Taiwan, Bolivia and the United States. Artistic creativity, versatility, technical precision—these are the primary ingredients of the perfect recipe for a performing arts ensemble. One other ingredient, that indescribable something that we call audience appeal, makes the picture complete. These are the elements that make up Nordic Voices.

This concert is free for the St. John’s community, $20.00 for the public. Cash and checks are welcome. Please note that we will not have credit card service at this event.
