“Some of you may remember the MTV hit show, Total Request Live (TRL) — it was must-watch after school tv, offering fans the novelty of calling in to request their favorite music videos and was an early version of the on-demand viewing we now take for granted.
In the world of choral music, singers rarely (if ever) get a chance to weigh-in on the repertoire they perform, so for this concert we’ve decided to flip the script…
Artistic director, Andy Jensen, invited No-Name singers to submit repertoire suggestions along with personal stories to explain the significance or special memories that make each piece so meaningful. These stories will serve as program notes, allowing singers to communicate directly with our audience. This concert is a collaborative effort unlike any you’re likely to have seen before.
“Total Request Live: Choral Edition” is a FREE, non-ticketed event and all are welcome. There will be a free-will offering taken to support the Kirkwood Area Every Child Promise, a non-profit organization committed to ensuring that all children and families are prepared for success as they enter kindergarten.
We sincerely hope you’ll join us for another experience worth sharing!”
