Minneapolis music group MCS

For those who love to sing, there is little that is more satisfying than hearing voices joining together in song. Minnetonka Choral Society (MCS) offers those in the west metro of Minneapolis a music group to do just that. Tight harmonies are rewarding to hear resonate. A resolving chord brings a sense of completion. A melody can be as pleasing to sing, as it is to hear. Singers love to learn new music as well as return to an old standard on occasion. Those are just some of the reasons why the members of the MCS join the group and return year after year. It’s fun to sing!

Choir Auditions

Auditions are held, by appointment, the evenings of our first two rehearsals in 
September and January
St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie

Auditions are with our friendly music director, Jere Lantz. The audition process is easy, beginning with some vocalization exercises to warm up. Plan to bring to the audition a short, prepared solo piece that demonstrates your vocal range. The piece could be your part from a choral piece you know, a song you learned in lessons, a folk song or other familiar song. Sing something you’re comfortable with so Jere can listen to you for a couple minutes. If needed, Jere will provide accompaniment. You may also be asked to sight-read your voice part from a short choral selection (like a hymn).  

Auditions are private and only take about 10 minutes.

Singer Expenses

As a self-supporting non-profit music group, Minnetonka Choral Society asks that members help contribute to the costs of the organization. Singers pay $50 in dues per semester and pay for their own copies of the music, which are theirs to keep. If these expenses present a financial burden for a singer, MCS is happy to work with them to find a solution. Cost should not be seen as a barrier to participating.
