Rock Ridge Director of Choir’s Final Concert

Rock Ridge will be hosting its final choir concerts on Monday. These two performances are made even more special because they will not only be the final concerts for the seniors, but also for the conductor.

Matt Krage, Director of Choirs at Rock Ridge High School, announced earlier this month that he and his family had made the difficult decision to leave the Iron Range. Krage said the main deciding factor came down to moving closer to family.

“Now that our kids are at the where they are getting involved in sports and music and starting to do more activities and starting to really get busy and create a full life for themselves, we just knew we had to get closer to home so that our family could be part of our lives,” said Krage.

Krage has lived on the Iron Range for 16 years and taught for 15 years as the Director of Choirs at Virginia High School, he has taught one year at Rock Ridge High School under the same title.

“I have so many great memories from the Iron Range and for my time here, and all of the success that my students and my choirs have seen in the last sixteen years would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support that I have received from the community and from the school,” said Krage.

Tonight’s concerts will both be held in the Rock Ridge Performing Arts Center and will include:

Bel Canto and Kantorei Spring Concert at 6pm.

A Capella Choir Spring Finale Concert at 7:15pm.

Both concerts will also be livestreamed, you can find the links at Rock Ridge High School Choirs.
