Singers in Accord, while maintaining high standards, is very welcoming and inclusive of new singers. In addition to excellence in performance, vocal development and healthy singing are key components of our choral experience.
Singers in Accord collaborates with a new conductor in each concert to create distinctive concert experiences for both its singers and audiences. Singers get an opportunity to work with multiple outstanding conductors each season. Our 2015-2016 season includes:
November 14 & 15, 2015.
Dr. Michael McGaghie, professor of music at Macalester College, will lead the ensemble in a program featuring Morten Lauridsen's "Mid-Winter Songs" and other seasonal works, including a commission by Dale Trumbore.
May 21 & 22, 2016.
G. Phillip Shoultz III, newly-appointed assistant conductor of VocalEssence, takes the podium to conduct SIA in celebrating the choral traditions of black composers, exploring black music beyond the gospel traditions.
Read what our singers have to say about being a part of the ensemble:
I come home from SIA rehearsal with my endorphins all charged up! After singing all day (as a music therapist) you would think it would be difficult to sing in the evening, too, but actually my voice is healthier and stronger than ever due to the fine vocal collaborators who teach us so much! Becky
For a singer who has been in choral music most of my life, this experience is a dream come true. Where else can you sing for such a group of great conductors who are experts in not only in choral music but in how to bring out the best voice from each singer? It really is a choir for the singer. DanSome examples of our past performances on YouTube:
- Ignite the Spirit concert with J.D. Steele
- If Music be the Food of Love with Jerry Rubino
- Mahler's 2nd Symphony with the Minnesota Youth Symphony
