Oasis Chorale

p>Like all high callings, thoughtful worship requires focus and effort. Certainly the call to worship is not exclusive to music, but permeates all areas of life. In the context of church music, however, the call to worship calls participants to give careful attention to both words and music. This can be learned and must be taught, and Oasis is committed to this process.

Worship cannot be divorced from a heart tuned to God. Oasis seeks participants eager for fully-orbed spiritual development.

Not all artistic music is rapidly attainable for all singers or accessible to all audiences. Artistic music usually requires training to be sung excellently and to be listened to with understanding and appreciation. Oasis intends to provide the necessary training to move singers and audiences forward one step in this process.


Ohio State University Men's Glee

The Ohio State University Men's Glee Club was organized in 1875. It is the oldest of hundreds of student organizations available to students at the university. The group has exemplified the university's dedication to tradition, excellence, and diversity.

At services the choir sings according to the 17th century "Kievan znamya" that synodic one-voiced song books are printed in. The absolute majority of composers, including P.I. Tchaikovsky and S.V. Rachmaninoff, based their sacred music on chants from those books.

Orphei Drangar

Orphei Drangar, known internationally as OD, is a modern male-voice choir, based in the Swedish University City of Uppsala. The choir, which dates back to 1853, has always been a torch bearer of the great Swedish choral tradition, in addition to playing an important international role in the development of the male-voice choir in modern music. The most important tradition of Orphei DrSngar is self-renewal. The male-voice choir is an instrument which can express itself in a multitude of different ways. OD has distinguished itself, both in Sweden and abroad, by developing and fine-tuning this instrument. Many people talk of the unique blend of young, lighter voices with older, more mature ones - a blend which produces a sound all of its own. Intonation, phrasing and purity are other words that are often used to describe OD's sound. A cappella songs are still the most important part of the choir's repertoire. But OD has gone one step further, breaking new ground when it comes to how a male-voice choir should look and sound. The forms of expression are numerous. The choir can just as easily sing with a symphony orchestra as accompany a dramatic composition or ballet.

William of Wykeham, who also founded Winchester College and rebuilt Windsor Castle for Edward III, was responsible for its creation, College and Choir. He provided for sixteen choristers and a dozen clerks to sing the daily office in his magnificent mediaeval chapel. This practice still continues within the context of today's University life.

Oxford Pro Musica Singers

The Oxford Pro Musica Singers was founded by Michael Smedley in 1977 as the Oxford Pro Musica Chorus, to sing with the then Oxford Pro Musica Orchestra in major choral works. In its early years the choir performed with some distinguished conductors, including Simon Preston, Christopher Seaman and Jane Glover. It also had a long and happy relationship with Denis Arnold, Professor of Music at Oxford University, who conducted many concerts of his beloved Venetian music. But the choir increasingly performed apart from the orchestra, and in 1985 claimed independence and adopted its current name.


Pacific Boychoir

Pacific Boychoir choristers participate in a very old tradition. Boychoirs have been around for hundreds of years, dating back at least to the fourth century. Early modern boychoirs were trained to sing with the collegiate and cathedral choirs of Europe. Today, most boychoirs are not affiliated with churches, though much of the great music written for boys came out of this tradition.

The Pacific Boychoir aims to match the world's best boychoirs (e.g., the Vienna Boys of Austria, Drakensberg of South Africa, the American Boychoir of Princeton). Critical reviews imply that the Pacific Boychoir is succeeding! Choristers learn that extraordinary accomplishment teaches lifelong lessons. Hard work leads to mastery. Personal responsibility and teamwork go hand in hand. The challenge of improvement leads to the joy of art well performed.

Pentatonix is comprised of lead vocalists Scott Hoying (21), Kirstie Maldonado (20) and Mitch Grassi (20), vocal bass Avi Kaplan (23) and beatboxer Kevin "K.O." Olusola (24) and, while the individuals would maintain that each of their fellow band members is irreplaceable, the fact remains that 24-hours before their audition for The Sing-Off they still hadn't all officially met.


Philomela Female Choir

The choir is known for its experimental choreographies and its chameleon-like ability to transform its style and appearance according to each occasion and venue. In spring 1998, the choir appeared in the Helsinki City Theatre production of The Sound of Music. Philomela's goals were set high at the outset. Due to goal-oriented work, the choir has risen to the top of Finnish choral music, and it has also received acclaim abroad. Philomela has produced numerous radio recordings, and in 1991 it received the Amateur Music Award of the Finnish Broadcasting Corporation (YLE). In the same year, Philomela was nominated Choir of the Year by the Finnish Women's Choir Association.

A Russian proverb says 'A fairy tale is a lie, but a song tells the truth.' Fairy tales have become rare in present-day Russia, but folk tunes still form an integral part of daily life. Accompanied by the balalaika and the bayan (a large button-key accordion), these songs tell of love and loss, of sadness and solace, of brave deeds and everyday problems. Humor and dance can be found here, as well as melancholic longing and heroic pathos. Some favorites of the 18 songs: 'Regimental Polka,' 'Kalinka,' 'Volga Boat Song,' 'The Swallow,' 'The Brave Don Cossacks,' 'Wait For Your Soldier,' 'Ochi Chornye-Dark Eyes,' 'In The Sunny Meadow,' 'The Cliff,' and 'On The March.' All accompanied. 'Kalinka' beautifully captures the brash power and deep emotions of the Red Star Red Army Chorus.


RIAS - Kammerchor

Founded in 1948, the RIAS-Kammerchor played an important role in the revival of the musical life of Berlin in the aftermath of the Second World War, notably in partnership with the Berlin Philharmonic and RIAS-Symphonie-Orchester (Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra). Conductors like Ferenc Fricsay, Karl B?hm, Herbert von Karajan and Lorin Maazel were closely associated with the Choir at that period, and in more recent years special mention may be made of its collaboration with Claudio Abbado, James Levine and Daniel Barenboim. Right from its foundation, the RIAS-Kammerchor has consciously placed contemporary music at the centre of its preoccupations, with the result that such major composers as Hindemith, Blacher, Kagel, Krenek, Boulez, Henze and Reimann have written for the ensemble or chosen it to premiere their works. As its name indicates, the RIAS-Kammerchor has developed essentially as a chamber choir. At the beginning of the 1970s, thanks to the impetus given by its artistic director of the time Uwe Gronostay, the choir affirmed its position as one of the finest on the international scene, going from strength to strength under his successor, Marcus Creed. In 2003 the latter was in turn succeeded by Daniel Reuss; under his leadership the choir continues to broaden its repertory to include performances of early and Baroque music.


Rockefeller Chapel Choir

Singing sacred masterworks of all periods and styles, this choir of 30-40 voices performs at Sunday morning services in the magnificent acoustics of Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. Firmly rooted in the tradition of Palestrina, Victoria, Bach, and Mozart, the choir also performs music of Africa and South America, modern and forgotten treasures, and even liturgical chant from Hildegard to Anglican. With an infinity to the great academic cathedrals of Europe, the choir strives to provide professional level performances, with a University of Chicago flair for innovation and recreation. The choir also presents three additional concerts per season, such as performances of Bach's St. John Passion with period instruments and world premieres of new music. From within the group, the Decani (formerly the Rockefeller Sixteen) sings 2-3 Sundays each quarter, concentrating on music written before 1700. Thanks to a generous grant from the University of Chicago Women's Board the Rockefeller Chapel Choir will be awarding four $4,000 scholarships to outstanding undergraduate singers of all faith and cultural backgrounds.


Saint Mary's College Women's Choir

Saint Mary's College Women's Choir, a select 40-voice ensemble, regularly commissions and performs new works for women's voices. An outgrowth of this emphasis is the publication of the Saint Mary's College Choral Series, a collection of new works for women's voices, published by earthsongs of Corvallis, Oregon. The Choir has performed throughout the United States and has appeared before state and division conventions of the Music Educators National Conference and the American Choral Directors Association. In February 2005, the Choir appeared before the national convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Los Angeles, performing in Wilshire Christian Church and the new Walt Disney Concert Hall. Each November the Choir hosts the annual Saint Mary's College High School Women's Choir Festival, in which 20 choirs from neighboring states perform for each other and a panel of commentators. The Choir tours nationally every other year, and regularly performs with the University of Notre Dame Glee Club in joint performances of major works with the South Bend Symphony Orchestra. They have appeared in concert at Carnegie Hall in 1999 and 2001, and returned there in November 2005 to perform music by Gwyneth Walker for women's voices and orchestra.

Music is at the heart of our mission, one of the primary ways in which we worship, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ.

Each year, the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, under the direction of John Scott, sing at nearly 200 choral worship services, including Choral Liturgies on Sunday mornings, Choral Evensong on Sunday evenings and on many Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings (September through May).
