Join us with Zoom!
While we can’t gather in person, MCS is keeping our members engaged with monthly Zoom sessions. Each session focuses on a musical topic presented by Director Jere Lantz and includes chances to sing along and chat. We are continuing these in January through March of 2021.
If you are interested in attending any of our Zoom meetings please register by clicking the PayPal button here. We ask that you make a voluntary payment of $20 (which covers all 3 months) to help compensate Director Lantz for his time researching and preparing each presentation, but you may also enter any amount less than $20 if this would be a financial hardship.
This registration will add you to our attendee list. You will then receive emails with the invitations to each Zoom session about a week in advance. Sessions are held the second Tuesday of the month (Jan12, Feb 9, and March 9).
In the meantime you can view recordings of our Fall sessions by clicking on the following links:
A Tradition of Choir Music in the Twin Cities
Minnetonka Choral Society (MCS) traces its roots back to 1957 and has been a fixture in the Twin Cities’ choir music scene ever since. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of our members and the community through great choral music performance. We love to sing! And we love nothing more than singing to a full audience.
Our Music Director, Jere Lantz, selects our music especially for us. The music ranges from old masterworks such as Mozart and Haydn masses and Brahms’ Ein Deutches Requiem to more contemporary compositions such as Vaughan Williams’ Hodie and Copland’s In The Beginning, to works by modern composers or arrangers such as John Rutter, Dominick Argento, Stephen Paulus, and Jeffrey Van. With a sprinkling of Broadway classics, traditional folk songs from around the globe, and timeless carols, you’re sure to find new favorites!
Minnetonka Choral Society is a non-profit concert choir run entirely by its members who volunteer their time and talents. MCS performs two full concerts per year: a spring concert and a holiday concert. When we sing, it can be joyously loud accompanied by a full orchestra or deliciously soft a cappella. Maestro Lantz fills the space between songs with a brief discussion of the history and context of each piece, bringing an even deeper appreciation to the listener. So if you enjoy great music, we invite you to join us at one of our concerts.
We look forward to sharing beautiful music with you!
