MCS is returning to singing and performing this winter in preparation for a spring concert. Bookmark our website, follow us on social media, or join our mailing list for all the concert details coming soon!
Would you like to sing with us? Auditions will be held the evenings of our first two rehearsals – January 18 and 25. Don’t worry if your voice is a bit rusty – you aren’t alone. Director Lantz has chosen pieces specifically to help us ease back in with confidence. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (952) 476-1922 to schedule your audition time!
MCS has implemented an array of safety precautions as we continue to deal with the corona virus pandemic, including: ALL singers MUST be vaccinated – no exceptions, and ALL singers MUST be masked during rehearsals. We also changed our rehearsal venue to St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie to allow for social distancing and better air circulation.
We hope to return in January. In the meantime, please continue to stay safe and keep music in your lives!
A Tradition of Choir Music in the Twin Cities
Minnetonka Choral Society (MCS) traces its roots back to 1957 and has been a fixture in the Twin Cities’ choir music scene ever since. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of our members and the community through great choral music performance. We love to sing! And we love nothing more than singing to a full audience.
Our Music Director, Jere Lantz, selects our music especially for us. The music ranges from old masterworks such as Mozart and Haydn masses and Brahms’ Ein Deutches Requiem to more contemporary compositions such as Vaughan Williams’ Hodie and Copland’s In The Beginning, to works by modern composers or arrangers such as John Rutter, Dominick Argento, Stephen Paulus, and Jeffrey Van. With a sprinkling of Broadway classics, traditional folk songs from around the globe, and timeless carols, you’re sure to find new favorites!
Minnetonka Choral Society is a non-profit concert choir run entirely by its members who volunteer their time and talents. MCS performs two full concerts per year: a spring concert and a holiday concert. When we sing, it can be joyously loud accompanied by a full orchestra or deliciously soft a cappella. Maestro Lantz fills the space between songs with a brief discussion of the history and context of each piece, bringing an even deeper appreciation to the listener. So if you enjoy great music, we invite you to join us at one of our concerts.
We look forward to sharing beautiful music with you!
