Kick off 2020 with a fun & unique community experience!
Join the Community Choir with Rachel Ries + Her Crooked Heart
January 7-11, 2020

Come be part of the fun! We welcome Twin Cities-based singer/songwriter Rachel Ries and her critically acclaimed band, Her Crooked Heart, January 7-11, 2020 for a series of pop-up events and workshops throughout the New York Mills community, concluding in a performance at the Cultural Center on January 11th at 7:30pm.

As part of this week long residency, the band are seeking local singers interested in being part of a pop-up ‘rock and roll community choir’ to rehearse the evenings of January 7, 8, 10th at 5:15 p.m., and join the band on stage at the Cultural Center for their performance on January 11th!

This opportunity is open to singers of all skill levels. If you can match a pitch or carry a tune, you can join! Singers don’t have to be able to read music or have training. Songs are taught with the help of sheet music and reference recordings.

The goal of the choir is to nurture a welcoming, joyful environment where anyone who longs to sing in a choir again (or for the first time!) is welcome to take part. Voices are the original instrument and few things are more unifying than voices, raised together in song.

If you are interested in taking part you can contact Betsy at, call 218-385-3339 or complete the form below.
