WINONA, Minn. — The community is invited to the inaugural Valéncia Chorale concert on Thursday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m. in the Chapel of Saint Mary of the Angels, 1155 W. Wabasha St. Comprised of singers from the Winona area, the Valéncia Chorale is a mixed community choir directed by Dr. Patrick O’Shea. They explore music of a wide range of periods and genres.

Tickets will go on sale Thursday, Nov. 14, and are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
