Refreshments are served after each of the programs. The one-hour program will include favorite hymns and spirituals with an emphasis on early American hymn-tunes, culminating in a patriotic medley in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. The chorus is directed by George French, associate professor and director of music and theater at the University of Minnesota Crookston.
