Our 2017 - 2018 Concert Season

November 11 & 12, 2017 - Angela Broeker, Conductor

Global Windows: How the World Sings

Dr. Broeker and Singers in Accord will collaborate with choirs from three unique cultures to bring the audience a window through which to experience non-traditional models of group singing. Works from the Maori culture in New Zealand, Lativa and Estonia, South Africa, Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines will be featured.  Joining the performances will be the Cameroon Choir (CamChoir), the Korean Women’s Choir, and Mila Vocal Ensemble and authentic traditional instruments for each vocal style.

 

May 5 & 6, 2018 - Sigrid Johnson, Conductor

21st Century Minnesota Masters

Guest conductor Sigrid Johnson, long-time member of the St. Olaf college faculty and former associate conductor of VocalEssence, will conduct Singers in Accord in a concert that features the rich and vital music of today's Minnesota's composers.  Tim Takach, Jocelyn Hagen, Daniel Kallman, Jake Runestad and Nancy Grundahl are just a few of our choral composers whose music is commonly featured on national and international choral programs. The program will be knit together by the poetry of Minnesotan David Bengsten. His poem, "What Calls Us" was selected by U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser for his "American Life in Poetry" column. Join us for this masterful performance!

 

Three great reasons to sing in Singers in Accord:

  1. Each season allows the singers the opportunity to work with two different, top level choral conductors who are experts in that concert's genre.
  2. The season is divided into two, 10 week semesters, which allows for mid-winter break around the holidays and mid-winter vacation.  Fall Semester: Early September through Mid-November; Spring Semester: Mid-February to through Late April (or Early May).
  3. While our ensemble emphasizes excellence and high performance standards, the culture of the group is welcoming and egalitarian. You'll enjoy the people you'll be singing with.

 

We are looking for Singers who:

  1. Have experience in choral singing at least at the college level
  2. Will conscientiously prepare in advance of each rehearsal
  3. Have the ability to learn music quickly and independently
  4. Can commit to sing for an entire concert season (preference is given to admitting these singers). 
  5. Are available to rehearse Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:30 p.m. Rehearsals are held at Good Samaritan United Methodist Church in Edina [map].

 

Listen to selected audio samples from our past concerts.
