          After a brief intermission the concert will conclude with several folk songs. “Simona MiDimona,” a Jewish folk song, will be sung, with sophomore Jake Henning, Fall Creek, on percussion. “American Folk Songs” by Stephen Foster will follow. The choir will perform “Let Me Fly,” an African-American folk song, with soloist and tenor Steve Howe, a freshman from St. Paul, Minn. The concert will end with “Ride On, King Jesus,” also an African-American folk song, with sophomore Jenifer Schwartzhoff, Eau Claire, on piano.
          Following the spring concert, the Concert Choir will go on tour April 25-27, with performances in Elk Mound, River Falls, Red Wing, Minn., Winona, Minn., and La Crosse.
