The ensemble will collaborate with Drake’s other choruses and a faculty/student orchestra to present “To Be Certain of the Dawn” at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 19, at the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines.

To participate in the chorus, singers must report to the first rehearsal at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 20 in Monroe Recital Hall on the lower level of the Harmon Fine Arts Center, 25th Street and Carpenter Avenue.
