Grand Rapids High School Chorus joins Minnesota Orchestra to perform Finlandia

From The Minnesota Orchestra:

The Minnesota Orchestra’s Common Chords week in Grand Rapids, Minnesota culminated with a spine-tingling musical exchange that captured the spirit of the project: when Sarah Hicks led the Orchestra in an unannounced encore of Sibelius’ Finlandia in a Saturday night concert at the Reif Center, singers from the Grand Rapids High School Choir stood up, two by two and then 74 singers strong, to sing along: “This is my song, oh, God of all the nations. A song of peace for lands afar and wide.”
