Mission & Bio
Our mission is to testify of Jesus Christ and His Gospel through music,
strengthen the faith of listeners and ensemble members,
and develop each musician’s appreciation and knowledge of sacred & secular music.
The Minnesota Saints Chorale is a 70-voice, auditioned choir comprised of musicians from the Twin Cities and surrounding area who share a love for singing and for Jesus Christ. Founded in 2004, the choir strives for choral excellence in singing a varied repertoire of sacred and secular works in both concert and worship settings throughout Minnesota. The choir has performed over 150 concerts with a repertoire of 250 pieces including major works such as Mozart’s “Requiem”, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 2 “Hymn of Praise” and Rob Gardner’s Easter Oratorio “Lamb of God”. In 2012, the Minnesota Saints Orchestra was organized to expand the sound, repertoire and mission of the chorale.
The choir values collaborative opportunities with other ensembles to build bridges of unity that inspire goodwill. Some recent collaborative concerts include the North Star Boys’ Choir, North Hennepin Community College Chamber Singers, the Choir of the Cathedral of Saint Paul, the Northern Lights Chorale and the Apollo Male Chorus.
The choir was honored to be featured at the American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota (ACDA-MN) Annual State Conference in 2017. Regular performances include concerts at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and springtime.
