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

One of our latest commissioned pieces, Hark! Ten Thousand Harps, arranged by Lyle Stutzman was featured on our 2023 Tour and recorded in this video at Norton Chapel in Keuka Park, NY.

Our Latest Choral Album

In 2022 we toured through Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee and loved seeing many of you at our concerts. Our final concert at Park View Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, VA was a highlight, coming after several days spent there recording our new choral album, New Every Morning – Great Is Thy Faithfulness (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.

Today we were on our own for the morning. My family and I decided to attend our hosts’ church, which, ironically, is named Oasis. We contributed to the service by singing a few songs; the four Miller brothers sang a number from their barbershop repertoire, and the four Nolt sisters also sang an...
