The Dudley Birder Chorale of St. Norbert College will perform two outdoor concerts this summer on Tuesday, June 29, at 6:30 p.m. and on Thursday, July 1, at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday’s performance will be the first of the Knights on the Fox series held on the St. Norbert campus and is a free event. Thursday’s performance will take place at the Green Bay Botanical Garden, 2600 Larsen Road, Green Bay. A limited amount of tickets for the botanical garden performance can be purchased at https://snc.edu/birderchorale.

The chorale will perform a mix of songs from prior concerts, such as “When the Saints Go Marching In,” “Hallelujah Chorus,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Be the Change” and more. The concert repertoire was chosen with the community in mind. “These outdoor performances will be a breath of fresh air for us and our audiences,” said Kent Paulsen, artistic director for the chorale. “We selected songs that symbolize what it means to sing in a communal setting, something we missed sorely over that last 14 months. As a group, we’ve faced some trying times, including the loss of friends and family. We hope these songs bring joy to everybody as we look forward,” Paulsen added.

The chorale will be joined by a small orchestra for its outdoor performances, including piano, electric bass, fiddle, violin and drums. The orchestra will be made up of Elaine Moss (St. Norbert faculty), Charlie DeVillers (St. Norbert alum), Audrey Nowak (St. Norbert and Youth Orchestra staff), and Cody Borley (Daddy D Productions).

Both performances are open to the public. For more info on the Knights on the Fox concert series, visit https://www.snc.edu/community/communityprograms/kotf.html.
