BEMIDJI - To a lot of Bemidjians, it wouldn't be Mother's Day without the annual Bemidji Chorale concert and ice cream social, and this concert celebrates 33 consecutive years.

Open to the public at no charge, chorale members are keeping a lot of the surprises to themselves, and conductor Pat Mason's theme is "Reflection, Possibility and Whimsey."

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Sunday in the Beaux Arts Ballroom at Bemidji State University.

Pianist Wayne Hoff will accompany the chorale and some of the featured singers include Eric Benson, Jim Dougherty, Josh Gunderson, Carla Norris Raynbird, Sharon Shuster, Sutton Stewart and Maddy Lawrence.

A freewill offering will be accepted after the concert.
