Bryan Poyzer knew he had to have a balanced quartet.
The choir director at North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, Poyzer is also a member of the American Choral Directors Association. Each year, the North Dakota members hold a convention. This year’s convention begins Friday, Feb. 3 in Fargo, including a performance by the North Dakota All-Collegiate Men’s Choir, made up of male singers from around the state.
Poyzer turned to his students Jeremiah Heupel of Medina, North Dakota; Madison Nelson-Gira of Wahpeton; Daniel Paluck of Dickinson, North Dakota, and Dakota Kleinsasser of Jamestown, North Dakota. The quartet will perform in a 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4 concert held by the men’s choir at the campus of North Dakota State University, Fargo.
“It’s really nice to sing with some of the top voices from around the state,” said Paluck, a second year student.
The four NDSCS men have sung together before, most recently at the school’s Christmas concert.
“I think we all get along and that’s a pretty good reason to sing together,” said Nelson-Gira, a first year.
Both Paluck and Nelson-Gira look forward to the concert.
“Everyone brings their own thing to the table. It’s going to be really cool, having everyone together,” Nelson-Gira said.
