BYU-Idaho Radio · Mark Kerback speaks about the upcoming Anam Cara Choir Concerts

Anam Cara will perform two concerts at the end of next week to celebrate the return of the music. 

“It’s the culmination of a year-long campaign that the choir has had to bring back the music,” said Mark Kerback, the board president for the Anam Cara Choir. “COVID hit us pretty hard like it did all choirs, and so a year ago we decided to start a fundraiser to bring music back to concert halls and to also provide money and support for professional musicians.” 

The Anam Cara Choir is an elite chamber choir of around 40 singers in the Idaho Falls area. Anam Cara was founded in 1999 and has been receiving praise ever since. 

It’s not just Anam Cara who will perform in these concerts. The Idaho Falls High School Expressions Choir will join them. 

“It’s been fun rehearsing with them and we are also being accompanied by 25 instrumentalists, primarily from the BYU-Idaho music staff. It is going to be quite a concert,” Kerback said. 

There will be two separate concerts, one will be in the Barrus Concert Hall in the Snow Building at BYU-Idaho on Saturday, May 7, starting at 7:30 p.m. The second concert will be at the Idaho Falls Civic Auditorium on Monday, May 9, also starting at 7:30 p.m. 

The concerts are free to attend and the second concert will be livestreamed for those who are unable to attend.
