Our Commitment to Advocacy

VocalEssence has a long history of advocating for singing together, which is evident in our actions in the community. We recognize emerging high school talent through our apprentice programs. Talented choir leaders in our school communities receive awards for groundbreaking work. Our staff serves in leadership roles in Minnesota Citizens for the Arts. And VocalEssence supports emerging composers through commissioning and premiering new works.

However, we want to do more. In 2013, a Board task force identified our role in advocating for this art form: Connections, Education and Diversity.
