Tesfa Wondemagegnehu performing “Rich State” at MinnRoast 2014
Tesfa Wondemagegnehu is the director of Choral Ministries at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis. He previously served as the conductor of The Radio Choir from American Public Media and as the assistant artistic director of VocalEssence. Tesfa’s booming voice has been the highlight of MinnRoasts past, as you can see above, and we’re happy to have him back on stage for this Friday’s show.
MinnRoast has become a highlight of the Minnesota political calendar, bringing politicians, actors, singers and journalists together to poke fun at each other in parodies, video sketches, and monologues.
Joining Tesfa in this year’s show: U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, actor Tyler Michaels, Mayors Jacob Frey and Melvin Carter, Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Daudt, vocalist Maria Jette, and many more.
