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.

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.

 July 2020 Tour Canceled

Due to the current pandemic, we have decided to cancel our summer tour. This hasn’t been an easy decision, but there really did not seem to be many other options, especially when considering that our choir is so geographically spread out. Stay informed on other projects we have by following us on social media and subscribing to our mailing list below.

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.

The service included OC singing 3 songs, Wendell’s talk on how singing is for every follower of Christ, and a talk by OC board member, Steve Martin. Steve inspired us to learn from those followers...
