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!

Choral features from Classical MPR

  • Interview: Six Appeal
    Men's vocal ensemble Six Appeal have a cheeky name, but they also have the goods to back it up. Two members of the group, Michael Brookens and Andrew Berkowitz, stopped in to talk to Alison Young before performing this Thursday at Harmony in the Park.June 4, 2014
  • Three singers from Cantus move on
    Tenors Gary Ruschman and David Walton as well as baritone Adam Reinwald, will depart Cantus to explore other endeavors after spending a collective 30 years with the singing ensemble. All three men joined Classical MPR's Alison Young for an interview on Friday, May 30.May 30, 2014
  • As Class Notes artists, Mirandola Ensemble hope to spread the joy of music
    Many lovers of classical music first hear it via their parents or other family members while growing up. They can't remember a time when it was not present in their life. Others, however, can point to a specific memory of when classical music entered their life. Scott Sandersfeld fits into the latter camp.May 19, 2014
