Step into the past to support the future of choral music education programs at VocalEssence. Join the VocalEssence Ensemble Singers and guest artist Don Shelby as Mark Twain on the historic Minnesota Centennial Showboat for a celebration of the river. Sip cocktails and enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres on the Victorian deck and then head to the auditorium where Mark Twain and the Ensemble Singers will take listeners on a musical journey of the past and present - choral masterpieces, favorite folksongs, traditional spirituals, and Americana.
