So, who are we?…
We are you!! We are your friends, your family, your co-workers, your neighbors. We are the people you see every day. We are a collection of people from right here in this community. First and most obvious, we are a group of singers that is passionate about really good choral music. We work hard to make our performances special. It isn’t all about work, though. We enjoy time together and time spent with our greater community. Our principles have helped guide us to use our abilities for good, promoting diversity in our organization and inclusion in our community.
Our community includes the many beautiful venues that we’ve been fortunate enough to perform in and the special groups that we work with. You might have seen as at Milwaukee’s Lake Park – “Festa Italiana.” Or maybe it was in the open tent at the Italian Community Center – “Opera in the Courtyard.” We especially enjoyed performing at the Milwaukee Soldiers’ Home and the Milwaukee County Zoo’s dedication day to the military. Or it could have been at some of our recent outings detailed below.
THIS is our community!
Hot Shop Glass
As musical artists, we appreciated the incredible discipline and experience it takes to mold molten glass into an array of vibrant colors. A huge thank you to the folks at Hot Shop Glass for allowing us to connect with a small business in southeastern Wisconsin that is exploring their own passion for art and bringing us a deeper sense of community.
Goodrich Elementary School
We enjoyed sharing our love of art with 3rd-5th graders as we celebrated our fall concert theme of “The Great Cathedrals” by creating artwork with them. A joint MSM and CBRE donation drive provided art supplies that will allow the students to venture into bigger and more imaginative projects. We were truly moved by the enthusiasm and creativity of the students.
St Paul’s Episcopal Church
Part of our 2019 Season, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church was founded in 1838, before Milwaukee was incorporated as a city, Wisconsin became a state, and the Diocese of Milwaukee existed. The church is home to the largest collection of Tiffany windows in the state of Wisconsin including the largest window ever created by the Tiffany Studio.
