Who We Are

We are a group of 40 singers of Anabaptist background from across US and Canada who meet every year to sing acapella music. We have toured in the US, Canada, and the British Isles and usually record a new choral album every other year. We are constantly seeking fresh ways for choral musicians to share God’s beauty with others and to sing God’s grace into our world.

2019 Tour

We toured through the Upper Midwest this summer and loved seeing many of you at our concerts. Our fundraiser concert at Sauder Concert Hall in Goshen, IN, was a highlight, coming after several days spent there recording our new choral album, The Glory of His Grace (pictured on right).

One enriching experience that Oasis Chorale enjoys on tour is participating in a workshop with a choral clinician.  In July of 2019, we enjoyed working with Dr. Rene Clausen, whose gentle feedback was affirming, gracious, and incredibly helpful. You can read more about our day with him on our blog.

From René Clausen:

The Oasis Chorale is an outstanding choir on every level.  It is comprised of excellent and highly skilled individual singers, yet the sense of awareness of the needs of the ensemble is ever present.  The Chorale is distinguished by tonal beauty, excellent intonation, refined musicianship, and outstanding interpretation under the direction of their fine conductor, Wendell Nisly.

LOST IN SHADY MAPLE SMORGASBORD One theme Wendell has shared with us this week is “Trust the Story.” It has been encouraging to remember that God is writing a unique story through each of us, and that each of us is part of a story that’s much bigger than us. Today began with the Oasis Chorale...
