The 2016 S.I.N.G.S. Festival!

The Bach Chorale Children’s Choir and Youth Chorus welcomes any young person ages 8 to 14 with an unchanged voice to register for the 2016 S.I.N.G.S! festival, which will take place on June 11th. The theme this year is "Broadway" -- come learn iconic songs from Broadway's greatest hits!

At S.I.N.G.S., our goal is for the singers to have fun! It is a quick-paced day full of singing, making new friends, and finding out what it is like to sing with Bach Chorale Children’s Choir!

Each singer will experience expert instruction on vocal technique and basic music reading skills. Most of our singers are beginners! All ages and ability levels are welcome. They will learn a few songs throughout the day to share at the parent concert.

Those interested should fill out this form and send it to us by May 31st.

Join Us At the Ballgame!

We simply could not be more excited about the arrival of the Lafayette Aviators in the Twin Cities!

Visions of summery, family friendly fun dance in our heads and the sweet music of bats, balls, gloves, steals, calls, strikes, and dust clouds rings in our ears.

What's more, our very own Children's Choir has the distinct honor and privilege of singing the national anthem at the Aviators' VERY FIRST game!

On June 1st at 6:35pm, our talented youth singers will give their friendliest musical welcome to the Aviators. If you buy tickets via this order form, $4 from each ticket sold will help send our youth choir to Washington, D.C. next summer. This is such a magnificent series of invaluable opportunities for our youth and we hope you will help us make it possible!

See you at Columbian Park! Go Aviators!

The Best of All Possible Worlds: Music of Leonard Bernstein

these are just a few of the titles ascribed to the most iconic American musician of the 20th century. From the classical tradition to musical theater, opera to film, sacred to secular, Bernstein viewed his music as a means of creating mutual understanding and peace.

Our 51st Season

This season is, in the words of Leonard Bernstein, whose music we will perform, "our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." 

Learn more about this exciting season, which begins with a performance of James Whitbourn's majestic and moving Annelies, based on the diary of Anne Frank, on our Concerts page.
