For April 16th, Public Radio Music Day, WKAR is bringing stories of local arts and cultural organizations in Michigan and how they are weathering this strange time in history. The Grand Rapids Choir of Men & Boys were in the midst of celebrating 30 years of performances, and the incorporation of a new concert series honoring a late young chorister, as well as a new Associate Director flying over from Belfast, Ireland for a concert, as director Scott Bosscher told WKAR's Jody Knol on this April 16th interview broadcast at Noon.
At the end of this interview, we also asked Scott for an inspiring piece of music, and what came to mind was requests to the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys had recieved about their recording of the Allegri 'Miserere' and what may be the only English version, as adapted by Sir David Willcocks.
But, we'd also like to know what music inspires you right now. Let us know by calling (567) 246-9038, letting us know your name, what that piece is, and why others will find it inspiring. Over the next few weeks, as social distancing continues, we may broadcast it on WKAR-FM & WKAR.org
