Choral Music from Classical MPR

American Spiritual Ensemble


Choral music is a treasured part of Minnesota communities, and Classical MPR recognizes that vital piece of our local culture. That’s why we’re excited to continue our support for our choral audiences with our choral music initiative.

Choral Stream

Music for Singing

We've created our 24/7 choral stream for one reason: we love this music. We want to share our favorites and some beautiful surprises with you. What'll you hear? A big range from Palestrina to Pärt, spirituals to Schubert, and new work by Whitacre, Lauridsen, Paulus, and more wonderful contemporaries. You'll discover great professional choirs, college choirs, amateur choirs, church choirs... anytime you want! Hit the Feedback link and tell us what you'd like to hear more of. We'll update the stream regularly, so chime in. And enjoy the music!
