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.

Hear Our Music

Our latest commissioned piece written by Douglas Byler, is featured in our new recording, The Glory of His Grace. The video below is from our 2018 tour.

Hymns of the Church, Vol. 4, Postponed

Unfortunately, we have had to postpone our planned recording projects of Advent and Christmas-themed selections from the Hymns of the Church hymnal. Hopefully next year, Lord willing!

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.  This year 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.

I am a music educator located in Ephrata PA, so my life was significantly altered when the country went into a state of emergency back in March.  (Gracious! It’s hard to believe we have been living with this new and hopefully temporary normal for that long.) I headed south to be with my...

2020 was already a strange year for me. I finished my late-onset undergraduate degree in December of 2019 and jumped right into a brand new teaching job in January. It was a time of many adjustments and a lot of learning on the fly. On March 12, I finished entering my third-quarter grades and went...
