Faith United Methodist Church in Sleepy Eye invites the community to a concert by The Chancellors—a men’s acappella quartet out of Minneapolis. Sleepy Eye native, Aaron Krienke, lead singer for the Chancellors which he joined recently, is excited to bring the sounds of the group to his hometown. “I love singing with the Chancellors, and coming home to perform is always special,” Krienke said. Krienke’s parents are Norman and Shirley Krienke.
The Chancellors have been singing Southern Gospel favorites throughout the United States and much of Canada since 1970. The group provided a press release in advance of their Sleepy Eye performance, describing themselves and their music as follows:
The Chancellors count is a privilege to combine their talents into an upbeat and uplifting concert ministry. Rather than resting in a single niche among the numerous Christian music genres, the group has rummaged freely through a stack of style books, grabbing whatever interests them. Sometimes the style is purely traditional or rich acappella, but more often they are tossed into the quartet’s blender so that an exceedingly tasty mixture emerges. The results may simply be vintage Chancellors’ music. The tight harmony sound, combined with their enthusiasm for Jesus Christ, personal testimonies, and a unique use of humor make The Chancellors enjoyable for all ages.
Group members include: Lead, Aaron Krienke, from Staples; Tenor, Jeff Lindstrom, from Savage; Baritone, Chris Fish, from Roseville and Bass, Mike McCowen from Blaine.
Each man in the quartet has the same purpose: to serve Christ through his musical gifts. While they enjoy singing together, the real motivation for The Chancellors is to be identifiable and approachable—in a word, real. Regardless of their circumstances, they haven’t forgotten from where they have come, and are still trusting God to take them where He wants them to go.
Faith United Methodist Church welcomes everyone to be their guests for supper and the concert. Hotdogs and a light meal will begin at 5:30 p.m.
