SWI Chorale Rehearsal Process (Men's and Women's Choirs)

The Arts Center, Iowa Western Community College
Come and experience the SWI Chorale (Men's and Women's Choirs) and participate in this fall's session!

Formerly known as the SWI Men's and Women's Choruses, this group has been re-branded as both a mixed choir, as well as single-gendered ensembles. Members will have the chance to sing in both experiences.

The men of the SWI Chorale will rehearse from 6-7:30 pm every Tuesday night. The women of the SWI Chorale will rehearse from 6:50-8:20 pm every Tuesday night. The middle section of the rehearsal will focus on the mixed choir literature.

There is no audition for this group, nor is there a fee for participating. We only ask for a dedication and commitment to each session, whether it's in the fall or spring.

The fall session will begin on September 12. The session will run through the fall concert on Sunday, November 5. A second performance will take place in Glenwood the following Tuesday, November 7.

Mystic Fest

10AM to 6PM | Mid-America Center
The Next Millennium is located in Omaha, Nebraska, and we have been in business for 20 terrific years. Our store is a family-owned business and we have had many of the same great employees for years. The store started off as a few incense racks and a shelf with a few books out of a hypnosis office! Charlie, the store’s founder, was working as a hypnotherapist and got requests from clients for books and incense. He had a second room in his office and started to bring in various incenses, rocks, and books. Initially, he had this “store” open by request only, then grew to being open for twelve hours a week! Demand grew and soon this space was not large enough to handle the requests for more products and we looked for a storefront. About a year later, we expanded the storefront to double the size of to allow for a classroom to offer classes on crystals, Reiki, Wicca, herbs, astrology, past life regression and many other great topics.
