Young musician’s work featured in Renaissance Christmas show
The Minot Chamber Chorale began one of the final rehearsals for their upcoming performance "A Renaissance Christmas."
These musicians worked on putting the final touches on their show, and this year's rendition features work from one its youngest members.
Conductor Emerson Eads, the choral director, commented on the occasion.
“We have a special arrangement by Erik Anderson. He graduated from Minot State University, he's an alum and wrote an arrangement. The Minot Chamber Chorale is going to be performing this piece for the first time." said Eads.
The piece is a new twist on an old classic. Anderson took the work "This Endris Night" and rearranged it for both choir and brass quintet.
Anderson completed his arrangement over the course of three weeks.
“This one I did start with the melody and then I figured out harmonies to go underneath that and backgrounds. I just listened to the melody a lot, I decided how I would turn it into something that's really fun to sing." said Anderson.
This event will be giving an up-and-coming musician the chance to showcase their work to the Magic City.
