Guelph Youth Singers

Guelph Youth Singers (GYS), now in its 20th season, has become a high profile representative of the City of Guelph in the field of choral music. The organization was founded in 1991 to provide children and youth with an opportunity to experience a professional level of musicianship. The four treble choirs in the organization are: Choir I, a training choir of children aged 6 and up; Choir II, a more advanced training choir of children and youth aged 9 and up; Choir III, a choir for singers who have superior singing and music reading skills, aged 11 and up; and the Chamber Choir, singers aged 14 and up chosen from Choir III who rehearse separately and prepare more challenging repertoire. Drawing from all choirs, a seasonal Boys Choir was developed in 2005 to compete in the Guelph Kiwanis Festival, to sing a feature piece in the major spring concert, and, more generally, to encourage the boys to appreciate their special part in the overall choir.

Weekly instruction includes vocal technique, theory and sight singing, and is augmented with workshops by guest clinicians in drama, movement and voice throughout the year. GYS performs up to five major concerts per season as well as workshop, festival, corporate, community and guest performances.

Handel and Haydn Society

Founded in Boston in 1815, the Handel and Haydn Society is the oldest continuously performing arts organization in the United States. The Society is a renowned period orchestra and professional chorus, performing music of the baroque and classical periods on the instruments and with the techniques of the time in which it was composed. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Harry Christophers, the Society's mission is "to perform baroque and classical music at the highest levels of artistic excellence and to share that music with as large and diverse an audience as possible."

Harmonies Girls Choir

HARMONIES GIRLS CHOIR has been recognized as an "elite" treble choir since its first appearance, in November 2002, for the dedication of St. Thomas Church , where they sang works by Mozart and Michael Praetorius. Since that year, they perform every year at the St. Sophia Orthodox Cathedral with great acclaim at its annual classical Christmas concert. They were soon invited to perform at the Our Lady of Los Angeles Cathedral , where now they are booked frequently for many events and in many other churches in L.A. and outside, including the Mission of St Ynes , in Solvang, CA

In July 2004, HARMONIES traveled to GERMANY to its first international tour since the group was selected to participate as a performing choir at the PUERICANTORES CHOIR FESTIVAL 2004. The girls sang at the Karmelitenkirche and Brendlorenzen in Bad Neustadt; Bad Konigshofen kirke ; the Wurzburger Dome in Wurzburg; Bad Kogahofen Kirke in Kaarst; the Folk im (Dom) Forum and the Great Cathedral of the Magi , in Cologne. The tour was a success, and Mr. Espinal and the choir were widely acclaimed by a warm German audience. Harmonies received reviews on the German newspapers "Bad Neustadt" and "Rhon-u Saalepost".

Harvard Glee Club

America's oldest college chorus, the Harvard Glee Club was founded in March 1858 by the president of Harvard's Pierian Sodality and several of its College friends. Over the rest of the 19th century, HGC numbered about a dozen or two men and sang a repertoire ranging from old European and American college and folk songs to contemporary art songs to popular operetta/show tunes, often combining with banjo and mandolin ensembles and local bands. Its performances were not limited to metropolitan Boston but extended throughout the Northeast.

In the early years of the 20th century, many HGC members were also singing in the Harvard University Choir. They appreciated the advantage of the vocal training and of learning sacred music, and they gradually convinced the Club to ask the University Organist and Choirmaster, Dr. Archibald T. Davison, to coach HGC. From 1912, "Doc" Davison expanded the Glee Club's musical horizons and improved its vocal/choral abilities, as a larger HGC performed solo concerts as far afield as the Midwest. During this period, Doc began combining HGC with the women of the Radcliffe Choral Society for large choral-orchestral works; and in 1917, HGC and RCS began singing these works with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, an association that continued into the middle 1970s.

Harvard University Choir

Approximately 50 singers form the Sunday Choir, a group that performs a wide range of choral literature for the Sunday services of The Memorial Church in Harvard Yard. The choir attracts singers who like a challenge, singing a wide variety of music at a professional standard with a weekly performance deadline. The group performs in the annual Christmas Carol Services and Spring Concert, and collaborates with other musical groups, both on and off campus. The Sunday Choir also undertakes both international and domestic tours. In recognition of their commitment, all members of this group are paid. Auditions for positions in the Sunday Choir are held early in the Fall Term.

Heartland Men's Chorus

Heartland Men's Chorus is Kansas City's gay men's chorus, singing out in Kansas City since 1986.

The members of HMC have joined together for the purpose of making music as a not-for-profit, volunteer chorus of gay and gay-sensitive people who are making a positive cultural contribution to the entire community.

We are a member of GALA Choruses, the international association of the lesbian and gay choral movement. Founded in 1982, GALA Choruses represents 190 choruses, their 10,000 singers and 750,000 patrons in Australia, Europe, South America, and North America.

Hilliard Ensemble

Unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music, The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups. Its distinctive style and highly developed musicianship engage the listener as much in medieval and renaissance repertoire as in works specially written by living composers.

The group's standing as an early music ensemble dates from the 1980s with its series of successful recordings for EMI (many of which have now been re-released on Virgin) and its own mail-order record label hilliard LIVE, now available on the Coro label; but from the start it has paid equal attention to new music. The 1988 recording of Arvo Part's Passio began a fruitful relationship with both Part and the Munich-based record company ECM, and was followed by their recording of Part's Litany . The group has recently commissioned other composers from the Baltic States , including Veljo Tormis and Erkki-Sven Tuur, adding to a rich repertoire of new music from Gavin Bryars, Heinz Holliger, John Casken, James MacMillan, Elena Firsova and many others.

Holst Singers

The Holst Singers are one of Britain's foremost choirs, described by the BBC as "a leading chorus on the international stage". In addition to their busy concert diary, they frequently broadcast on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3, and regularly record for leading classical labels. With the support of their President, James Bowman, and Musical Director, Stephen Layton, the choir has developed an interest in exploring new and neglected works as well as core choral repertoire.

Recent CD releases include Ikon II, the long awaited sequel to Ikon (1997), a disc that immediately became a cult classic and a best-seller. Ikon II brings together a selection of Russian choral masterpieces in an extraordinary disc which is immediately enthralling. Recently reviewed on BBC Radio 3 Record Review, the disc was describled as "impeccable... so, so well-conceived" and Jeremy Summerly, the guest-reviewer commented on the choir's "phenomenal sound".

Honved Ensemble Male Choir

The Honved Male Choir founded in 1949 in Budapest - the only professional male choir in Europe - is a curiosity not only in Europe but unparalleled nearly all over the world. Their sound merges the range and power of Slavonic choirs with the exceptional emotional sensitivity and expressiveness characteristic of Central European choral musical culture.

The ensemble that currently works with 44 singers is elevated to the top of European choir by its artistic openness, dedication to educating talents and high professional standard. The dramatic power, tremendous voices, the dark tone of the basses coupled with smoothness and virtuosity combine the traditions of East and West.

The choir sings almost every genre, period and style of music literature. From Gregorian chants to contemporary music, from Russian church music through opera to jazz a wide variety of genres and styles are to be found on their repertoire.

Hover Chamber Choir

The Armenian word Hover (wind) frequently occurs in beautiful folk songs by Komitas, a revered name in Armenian sacred and folk music, which is part of the choir's core repertoire. Wind is a primordial element of nature and a life force - it is part of the 'ecology of the soul', a spirit sweeping through time and, like an epic, legend or tale........

This youthful, musically progressive chamber choir is proud to be able to present Armenian music to the wider world. Both old and new music from the Armenian nation has been a very well-kept secret. Hover has been privileged to be able to be one of the most active Chamber choirs in promoting Armenian music and the wealth of treasure with which this beholds.

The internationally acclaimed, award-winning Hover: Chamber Choir of Armenia was established in Yerevan, Armenia in 1992 as a performing arts group, consisting of 26 singers many of whom are students, or graduates, of the Komitas National Conservatory in Yerevan, Armenia. The choir is supported by donations and honoraria. The tale of Hover began over ten years ago, and continues to evolve......

Huddersfield Choral Society

Founded in 1836, Huddersfield Choral Society has an international reputation as the UK's leading choral society, producing a unique and thrilling full-bodied 'Huddersfield Sound' from over 200 voices.

The repertoire includes both oratorio and religious music, contemporary and commissioned works. The Society's busy schedule is centred on its own subscription concert season in Huddersfield Town Hall, including of course annual performances of Messiah.

Indiana University Children's Choir

Founded in 1980 by Dr. Mary Goetze and Dr. Jean Sinor, the mission of the Indiana University Children's Choir is to teach young people to value and experience excellent singing through musical activities which develop skills, sharing, self-expression, and personal growth. This goal will result in a lifelong appreciation of fine music.

Indianapolis Women's Chorus

It was early spring, 1994. Grotesque, yet strangely melodious sounds rose from the basement of North Meridian United Methodist Church in Indianapolis. Fledgling director Nancy Hayden was leading the fledgling Indianapolis Women's Chorus through some vocal warm-ups. She made them sigh loudly, sing belly laughs and make various mouth shapes and tongue-flapping sounds that would have gotten you sent away from the dinner table when you were a kid. This, and other hard work, led to the chorus' first public performance, wearing matching teal T-shirts and singing many matching notes, on June 4, 1994, at the National Women's Music Festival. Applause was supportive.

By the December concert that year, the chorus' vocal skills had sharpened considerably, as had its attire. At the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, members sang a full program of winter songs ranging from early American to the Far East.

The nature of the applause changed from, "Oh, let's clap; the poor things are trying so hard," to "Wow, they're good!" And so they grew, season by season.

Iowa State Singers

The Iowa State Singers is a 72-member mixed choral ensemble comprised of students from all areas of study at Iowa State. This select ensemble performs the finest literature from Renaissance to contemporary. In addition to performing various concerts locally, the Iowa State Singers tour annually and present an authentic Madrigal Dinner every January.

Last year, the Iowa State Singers were honored with an invitation to perform at the 2009 ACDA (American Choral Directors Association) National Convention, Thursday, March 5, in the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City, OK. The Singers were one of just six collegiate choirs selected nationally to give solo performances. Thousands of choral conductors from the United States and abroad were in attendance. The Singers were last honored with an ACDA National Convention appearance in 2005, where they gave three performances before enthusiastic audiences in Los Angeles, CA.

Iowa State Statesmen

The Iowa Statesmen, one of the region's leading men's choirs, was founded by Dr. Rodde in the fall of 2000. The ensemble meets three times per week, MWF, 1:10-2:00 p.m., and specializes in the performance of traditional and contemporary male chorus literature. The group gives various performances during the year and enjoys playing an active role in the Iowa State community. In addition to annual fall and spring concerts, the Statesmen annually join the other three ISU choirs to present both the Holiday and Masterworks Concerts, each with orchestra.

The choir also embarks on a brief regional tour every spring. In 2005 the men sang for large enthusiastic audiences in Davenport and Waterloo. Each concert closes with the rousing ISU School Songs -- a great tradition.

Isthmus Vocal Ensemble

The Isthmus Vocal Ensemble comprises a temporary community of Madison's finest singers. Gathered around a single event, for a chance to work with our guest conductor, this group brings a high level of individual skill, and a remarkable ability to quickly bond together.

It started as a strange thought: Why not bring Madison's best choral singers together with a gifted conductor for two intensive weeks, and harness that collective creative energy for a single performance?

Joyful Company Of Singers

One of Europe's most prominent chamber choirs, the JCS is renowned for its virtuosity and intensity of spirit, as well as for an astoundingly wide repertoire, ranging from the 16th Century to the present day. An important element of the choir's raison d'etre is its commitment to contemporary and new music, including a high proportion of first performances, and supported by several highly-successful Educational Projects. Many composers have written music for JCS, including David Bedford, Michael Berkeley, Judith Bingham, Jonathan Harvey, Alun Hoddinott, Roxanna Panufnik, Kaija Saariaho and Malcolm Williamson.

Kansas City Chorale

Since the debut performance in 1982, the Kansas City Chorale has provided audiences with a high caliber of choral artistry, performing a diverse repertoire of new and traditional music. Under Charles Bruffy's leadership the choir has garnered international recognition for artistic merit, having been praised for its refined sound, phrasing and flawless intonation.

As a cornerstone of the Kansas City performing arts community, the Chorale creates concert programs and recordings that educate, engage, provoke, and inspire listeners. The Chorale's ongoing outreach efforts facilitate the development of local talent, while providing students and their instructors with the opportunity to learn from world-class vocalists.

King's Singers

One of the world's most celebrated ensembles, The King's Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of young and established composers, they remain consummate entertainers; a class-act with a delightfully British wit. From Gesualdo and Gyorgy Ligeti to Michael Buble, The King's Singers are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, their impeccable vocal blend, the flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing.

During the 2011-12 concert season, The King's Singers will perform across the world in some of the world's most beautiful concert halls including the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Berlin Philharmonie, and the Warsaw Philharmonic Concert Hall.

Klarup Girls' Choir

The internationally acclaimed Klarup Girls Choir was founded in 1980 as part of the Klarup School Choir. One of the leading choirs in Denmark, it has received much recognition. In 1984 the choir won the Danish choral championship for school choir. Five other wins subsequently followed. They have often been broadcast on Danish radio and television. In 1993 the choir achieved a high placing in the international competition, "Let the People Sing." Led by Jan Ole Mortensen, this choir continues to maintain the high standards of choral singing found across the Scandinavian countries.

Knabenchor Capella Vocalis

The boys' choir capella vocalis e. V. has existed since 1992. Compared with other famous boys' choirs, this choir is special in a number of ways: it is not linked to any religion, nor is part of a communal institution - capella vocalis is an independent choir. It is financed solely with the member's fee and sponsoring.

The boys sing religious and secular music and perform in churches as well as at numerous other venues, such as large private functions or official receptions. Capella Vocalis does not have a central meeting-point. Parts of the choir practice in Reutlingen, others in Besigheim and its region. This not only means that potential members can be recruited from a larger area - an important requirement for a successful choir - but also that they can meet and practice more easily.

In each of the choir's age-groups the singers receive solo and group training. A new course for beginners starts two or three times a year.

La Venexiana

The name La Venexiana is taken from an anonymous Renaissance comedy, one of the cardinal points of reference in Italian theatre both for its use of language, a combination of Italian and dialect, and for its acute rendering of a society and its manners. In styling itself after this glorious tradition, La Venexiana aims to incorporate into its musical interpretations an attention to language in all of its subtlety, and an exultation of contrasts between the refined and the popular, the sacred and the profane. This ensemble has established a new style in Italian early music performance: a warm, truly Mediterranean blend of textual declamation, rhetorical colour and harmonic refinement. Born of the collaboration between soprano Rossana Bertini and countertenor Claudio Cavina, its current musical director, La Venexiana makes a careful use of the original sources, keeping the activity of the ensemble always stimulating and full of enjoyable surprises.

Land of Lakes Choirboys

As a young Marine on weekend liberty almost a half-century ago, Craig Carmody-Anderson accompanied a friend-reluctantly!-one day in 1962 to hear the Vienna Boys' Choir. By intermission he knew that, though he had scant musical training or experience, this is what he wanted to do one day. A chance encounter the following year with a suddenly director-less choir at the Minneapolis Boys' Club ("Well, they were not the Vienna Boys' Choir," he notes dryly) led him to learn the rudiments of directing-on the job, from the accompanist. But soon other obligations and interests intervened-family responsibilities (he had married the accompanist), the Boys' Club, a career as police officer and coaching boys' gymnastics. For years, having a choir of his own remained just a dream. Finally, in 1976, "Andy" was asked to form a choir to sing at a celebration of the country's bicentennial in his native Elk River, Minnesota. He agreed-on condition that it be a boy choir. An ad in a local newspaper and in church bulletins drew 18 boys to the first rehearsals, and when the celebration was unceremoniously cancelled, parents convinced the director to continue, and the Land of Lakes Choirboys was born.

Lawrence Children's Choir

Founded in 1991 by sisters Janeal Crabb Krehbiel and Marilyn Crabb Epp, the Lawrence Children's Choir has grown from one 40-voice choir to an organization comprised of six choirs serving approximately 250 singers from Northeast Kansas, including the communities of Lawrence, Perry, Emporia, Osage City, Topeka, Baldwin City and Eudora. Current choirs include Capo, for preschool-kindergarten students; Cadenza, for kindergarten-3rd grade students; Choristers for 3rd-6th grade students; Tour Choir for 5th-10th grade students; the Ambassador Choir for 8th-10th grade students, and the Crescendo Choir, for senior citizens. Upon Janeal Krehbiel's retirement in April, 2012, long-time assistant Carolyn Welch as

Lege Artis Chamber Choir

The Lege Artis Chamber Choir established by Boris Abalian in 1987 (the Latin name of the choir means "by the law of art") is an ensemble of 25 professional musicians. In the very first years of its existence, LEGE ARTIS became recognized and widely known, winning at five international competitions (Neerpelt, Belgium, 1990; Montreux, Switzerland, 1991; Tours, France, 1991; Darmstadt, Germany, 1995; Torrevieja, Spain, 1997). Today, Lege Artis enjoys a stable international reputation of a highly professional ensemble; the choir frequently tours in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Spain, France, the United States, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Estonia, year after year expanding its touring geography.

Les Sirenes Female Chamber Choir

Les Sirenes is a Glasgow-based female chamber choir consisting of 26 vocalists, all students and graduates of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (formerly RSAMD). In October 2012, the choir was awarded the prestigious title of Choir of the Year 2012, after an extensive UK-wide search and a competitive Grand Final held at London's Royal Festival Hall. The ensemble was established in 2007 by present musical director Andrew Nunn and performs regularly across Scotland and beyond, having given concerts in renowned venues such as Glasgow Cathedral, the SECC, Dunkeld Cathedral, Paisley Abbey, the Mackintosh Church, the Queen's Hall, the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and London's Cadogan Hall. The choir has also performed in more obscure locations, having "sung on the subway" as part of the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) promotion of the Glasgow underground.


The distinctive sound of Libera has travelled the world in the last few years. The group's albums have topped both mainstream and classical charts in many countries, and their recordings hold their place in top-tens alongside major artists like Bocelli.

The boys who make up the vocal band Libera have been described as "normal" and "ordinary". However, as their recordings and performances demonstrate, the music they produce is truly extraordinary. With shimmering, mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies, they are unlike any other group you have ever heard. These are truly sounds to lift the soul. Celestial sounds for a new time.

London Jewish Male Choir

One of the foremost Jewish choirs in the world, the London Jewish Male Choir has a long history of entertaining audiences with high quality performances of a broad range of Jewish music. Our repertoire includes music sung in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Russian, and English.

The choir is currently enjoying a renewal with young dynamic Musical Director, Michael Etherton, the addition of fresh modern repertoire and several fresh singing talents including Chazzan (Cantor) Steven Leas. In 2004, the choir appeared at Wembley Conference and promoted a sell-out concert at the new ArtsDepot venue with the four piece group "Shir". In January 2005 the choir toured Florida to packed houses, performing with top Chazzanim (cantors) including, Moshe Schulhof, Gideon Zelermyer and Benjamin Warschawski.

Los Angeles Chamber Singers

Los Angeles Chamber Singers & Cappella are one of L.A.s premier professional chamber choirs. Founded in 1990, Chamber Singers is a mixed choir of 24 voices performing primarily contemporary American choral literature in the a cappella tradition, with a specific dedication to Angeleno composers. The early music ensemble Cappella was added in 1993 and performs primarily sacred music written between 1350-1650 in period vocal style, with emphases on 16th century European music, 17th century colonial Mexican music (especially Padilla), and 18th century colonial American music (especially Billings). On 11th February 2007, Cappella won the 2006 GrammyAward in Best Small Ensemble Performance for their latest release, PADILLA - Sun of Justice (RCM 12006).

LACC also assists Los Angeles Opera by training and providing children for its opera productions that require children's chorus or child soloists.

Los Angeles Master Chorale

Giving a voice to Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Grammy-nominated Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC), considered one of the world's leading choirs, is led by Music Director Grant Gershon. The Los Angeles Times proclaims, "Under Gershon, the Master Chorale seems to be able to master anything," The New York Times calls the choir "inspired," and The New York Observer declares it "a superb vocal ensemble." The Chorale is currently in its 47th season as a resident company of the Music Center of Los Angeles County and its 8th as the resident chorus at Disney Hall.

Lund University Male Choir

As the starting date of LSS is most often used November 20, 1831. This was the first time a male quartet appeared at a concert in Lund, although there had been more or less loosely organized exercises for a couple of years. In 1833, the name LSS is referred for the first time, although at this point in time it is an abbreviation of Lilla Sangsallskapet (The Small Song Society). Five years later, the constitution of Lunds Studentsangforening appeared.

From the beginning, Sven Loven was the conductor of the choir with Otto Lindblad as his right hand, and it seems as if Lindblad gained the role as the choir's leader from 1835. The early repertoire consisted mainly of German songs mixed with a few contributions of Lindblad. Over the years, he would provide more and more compositions.

Luther College Aurora

Aurora is one of six auditioned choral ensembles at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. Established in 1981, the group is comprised of 100 first-year women, selected each fall by audition.

Male Ensemble Northwest

Male Ensemble Northwest was formed in Longview, Washington, in 1982, the brainchild of Howard Meharg of Longview, who wanted to form a singing group as well as encourage young males in public schools to sing in choirs of all kinds. Thus it was that Male Ensemble Northwest was formed to demonstrate a high level of music making by choral conductors from the Pacific Northwest region and also to promote male choral singing.

In the years since its inception, MEN has appeared in concerts from local churches and auditoriums to regional and national audiences, always remembering to spread the message of male singing. They have performed at national conventions of the American Choral Directors Association in Washington, D. C., and San Antonio; and several Northwest regional conventions. They have appeared at the leadership conference of ACDA in Lawton, OK, and several state conventions, most recently in Oshkosh, WI.

Male Voice Choir of Helsinki

Akademiska Sangforeningen or The Academic Male Voice Choir of Helsinki, colloquially known as Akademen, abbreviated A.S., is a Finland-Swedish male voice student choir based in Helsinki, Finland. The choir was founded in 1838 (at the latest) by Fredrik Pacius, music teacher at the Imperial Alexander University of Finland (now University of Helsinki) and known as "the father of Finnish music", and is thus the oldest Finnish choir still in existence.

During the 19th century Akademiska Sangforeningen became an important symbol of national awakening in the emerging Finnish nation, at the time part of the Russian empire as the Grand Duchy of Finland. On 13 May 1848, Pacius' composition Vart land ('Our Land'), set to the poem by Johan Ludvig Runeberg, was performed for the first time by Akademiska Sangforeningen during the students' celebration of the Flora Day. The composition was later to become the national anthem of the independent Finland.

Malle Babbe Women's Choir

Named after the painting "Malle Babbe" by the 18th-century Dutch painter Frans Hals, Vrouwenkoor Malle Babbe is a 50-member female choir of Haarlem that was founded in June 1982 by its conductor Leny van Schaik. Their repertoire is wide-ranging, from secular and sacred music to Dutch folk songs. They achieved international acclaim in their performance of "vocal orchestra music" on their album Song of Survival, which was based on music sung by prisoners in a Japanese women's camp on Sumatra during the Second World War.

Manitou Singers of St. Olaf College

Comprised of select women's voices from the first year class, the Manitou Singers is one of the most popular music organizations on the St. Olaf College campus. Despite a complete turnover in personnel each year, the 100-voice choir sings at the opening worship service of the college as well as at various campus functions throughout the year such as daily chapel and church services, the annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival, Family Weekend Concert and its own Spring concert in April. With a repertoire that ranges from sacred to secular to popular ballads, the Manitou Singers have broad appeal both on and off campus.

Mediaeval Baebes

Mediaeval Baebes' exquisite storybook opened its pages in 1996, when a group of friends broke into a North London cemetery and sang together, clad in flowing white gowns and crowns of ivy.

Pulling lyrics from medieval texts and setting them to original scores using mediaeval and classical instruments, whilst singing in an impressive array of long forgotten languages, the Baebes offered a unique musical beauty and outstanding talent. Their choice of mediaeval texts were dramatic, obscure and dark in topic and remarked upon the inevitability of death, the pointlessness of material possessions, the horror of unrequited love or the dangers of imbibing too much alcohol. Some themes are timeless!

Melodia Women's Choir

Founded by Jenny Clarke, Executive Director, in 2003, Melodia Women's Choir is a fresh voice on the New York choral scene. An ensemble of 32 singers, Melodia explores and performs rarely heard music for women's voices in many different styles, and nurtures emerging women composers through commissions, residencies and performances. Under the direction of Cynthia Powell, founding conductor and Artistic Director, Melodia has performed at Symphony Space, Merkin Concert Hall, Church of Saint Ignatius Loyola in collaboration with Sacred Music in a Sacred Space, and the Surrogate's Courthouse as guest artists at Women History Month Celebrations for the NYC Comptroller. We have been heard on WNYC radio and seen on NBC TV.

Memphis Boychoir

We are extremely proud to begin the 23rd season of the Memphis Boychoir with 21 boys between the ages of 6 and 11. This season promises to be both challenging and rewarding. We have recently been invited to sing Evensong at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. This will be a life-changing opportunity for the boys and adults in our program. Performing and interacting with institutions like the National Cathedral promotes a great sense of growth and development in the Memphis Boychoir. We are focused not only on the continuing musical growth of the boys, but also the process of them developing into the next great leaders in the city of Memphis. We continue to search and recruit boys who love to sing as well as families that appreciate the life-long skill of music making that their children are exposed to.

Michigan State Children's Choir

Founded on the belief that music dramatically enhances the quality of life, Michigan State University's Community Music School (CMS) offers opportunities for the study, appreciation, and therapeutic use of music while nurturing the musical development of all individuals. CMS is the outreach division of the MSU College of Music.

At CMS, students and therapy clients are brought together with music professionals who are committed to sharing their extraordinary gifts by offering accessible and affordable music instruction, music therapy, and performance opportunities for all in the community.

Millikin University Choirs

Showcasing its reputation for tonal diversity, the University Choir is garnering wide acclaim for it's varied styles and unique programming. In 85 years of touring history the choir has performed throughout the U.S. and abroad. The Choir's extensive touring history includes performances in Scandinavia, Russia, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, England, China and Taiwan. This summer the choir is planning a Celtic Tour of Scotland and Ireland.

The choir's new CD, Hearts All Whole (2010) is available through First Step Records. In addition, the choir has several other CDs to its credit, including last year's live recording of the 51st annual Vespers at Millikin, a tradition that attracts 7,000 annually.

The University Choir has been invited to perform before three Regional and one National Conference of the American Choral Director's Association (ACDA). They are one of five university mixed choirs invited to perform for this years' ACDA National Conference in Chicago. The choir will tour Ireland and Scottland in May of 2011.

Milwaukee Children's Choir

Milwaukee Children's Choir is Southeastern Wisconsin's premier children's choir. We provide children with exceptional choral music instruction and performance experiences they can get nowhere else in the area. Founded by Emily Holt Crocker in 1994, a new era began when Carol Storck became MCC's Artistic Director in 2009.

Under Ms. Storck's leadership, we offer programs for children ages 4 through 18. All classes and rehearsals are educational, child centered, and age appropriate. We believe in educating the whole child, and work with the human voice to teach not only music but also important life skills such as poise, self-confidence, focus, problem solving, and teamwork. Experts agree that singing in a choir has a remarkably positive impact on children. Choir parents agree with the experts. Our choristers simply say how much fun it is to be a part of the choir!

Milwaukee Choral Artists

The Milwaukee Choral Artists (MCA) is Wisconsin's premier professional choral ensemble, and one of only five professional women's choral ensembles in the country. With its signature lush sound, MCA brings a distinctive repertory of choral and vocal masterworks-including well-known pieces, new music, seldom-performed works, and music of diverse cultures and historical periods-to concert audiences throughout the region.

Founded in 1998 as a chamber ensemble comprised of professional solo singers, MCA occupies a singular position of excellence in the city, state, and region. In December 2007, Tom Strini, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Music Critic, named the Milwaukee Choral Artists-Present Music collaborative performance of Olivier Messiaen's "Trois Petites Liturgies" (with MCA's Sharon Hansen conducting) the #1 Performing Arts Event of the Year. Two years previously, MCA's "Liederabend" was named the Journal Sentinel's #1 performing arts event of 2005; of the top ten events named that year, MCA held two positions.

Minnesota Boychoir

The Minnesota Boychoir, founded in 1962, is the oldest boychoir in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metropolitan area. The Boychoir's reputation for excellence has brought invitations from local and national music conventions, as well as sporting events and touring Broadway companies. The Boychoir has performed with the Minnesota Orchestra, the Minnesota Opera, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony, the Prague Philharmonic, Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion on National Public Radio, and a long list of local and national performers.
