What We Do

Attending a VocalEssence event has been described as “invigorating,” “inspiring,” and “transcendent.”  And, that’s because behind every exciting concert and class is a commitment to harness the power of choral music to enrich Minnesota’s communities.

At VocalEssence, we believe when we sing together, we succeed together. We invite you to be a part of it:

Concerts and Events—Attend an upcoming VocalEssence concert, community event, or fundraising gala.

Performing Ensembles—Learn about our world-renowned concert performers—the Ensemble Singers and the VocalEssence Chorus.

Programs for Schools and Students—See how our school programs—such as WITNESS and ¡Cantaré!—bring music and cultural awareness to students in grades 4-12.

Programs for Older Adults—Discover Choral Pathways and Vintage Voices—our programs designed specifically for people at assisted living residences and senior centers.

Opportunities for Music Professionals—Get involved at a professional level as a composer, teacher, or performer.

Our music—Listen to recordings, watch videos, purchase CDs, and browse our entire repertoire database.

Advocacy for Choral Arts—Stand with us to support the choral arts and music education.
