Join us for the closing concert for choral students in grades 9-12 following their participation in the 2017 VikeSing Men's Choral Festival. The finale concert is 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.

Festival participants will rehearse together all day Thursday, Oct. 19, in a massed choir that will focus on vocal technique, ensemble awareness, and musical expression, all in preparation for the choir’s performance at our grand finale concert that evening at the Washington Pavilion. Also appearing in the closing concert will be The Augustana Choir, the University Chorale and our women's choir, Angelus.

The VikeSing Festival students will perform the following selections:

  • Bonse Aba. Traditional Zambian Song, arr. Andrew Fischer
  • Not While I'm Around. Stephen Sondheim, arr. Robert Page
  • Woke Up This Morning. Traditional freedom song, arr. Jeffrey Douma

Augustana faculty members Dr. Paul Nesheim, Dr. Russell Svenningsen and Dr. Lisa Grevlos will conduct the festival choir.
