Fresh off a two-week tour in France, Anonymous Choir brings you a special performance as a quartet. We will sing our tributes to the Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, plus several original songs written by Nona Invie. Her solo 7 inch record will be available here for purchase.
Joined by Mina Moore, a singer-song writer from Minneapolis. Her music draws from that of her upbringing, leaning heavily on soul, R&B, and inevitably, pop. Like so many of us, Mina's pallet is ever growing, and her live performances aim to educate as much as entertain. She and her band have opened for some of their greatest influences, including Haitus Kaiyote, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Morris Day & The Time. Mina Moore will release her debut album this spring.

Elizabeth Alexander is a poet and Pulitzer Prize finalist.
From the publisher about “Light of the World”:
Elizabeth Alexander found herself at an existential crossroads after the sudden death of her husband. Channeling her poetic sensibilities into a rich, lucid price, Alexander tells a love story that is, itself, a story of loss. As she reflects on the beauty of her married life, the trauma resulting from her husband’s death, and the solace found in caring for her two teenage sons, Alexander universalizes a very personal quest for meaning and acceptance in the wake of loss.
