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.

Sunday morning July 11th we assembled the troops for worship at 9 am with the Calvary Mennonite congregation. We have suffered a few vocal casualties and a couple directionally challenged casualties as well. Calvary welcomed us with open arms and we participated as best we could while...
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...
