VocalEssence invites you to spring into song on May 6, 2018 by attending VocalEssence Gala 2018, a singing celebration to benefit the VocalEssence Community Engagement Programs. Every other year VocalEssence presents an out-of-the-box gala, and this spring is no exception.

We invite you to help lead the charge as we come together and raise our voices for the community at the VocalEssence Gala 2018. Kicking off our golden anniversary, VocalEssence will be joined by a star-studded surprise cast of artists from throughout the Twin Cities, including The New Standards, singing old works, new works, and celebrating the good work we do in our community. Guests can bid in the not-so-silent auction, join in the sing-along, savor delectable cuisine, and raise a glass as we toast to the next 50 years!
