Singing Saints Choir
The SINGING SAINTS is the 50+-voice concert choir of Saint Paul Lutheran High School, Concordia, Missouri, USA, under the direction of Dr. Jerrode Marsh. The choir is comprised of students in grades 9-12, with members from 14 different nationalities, including Slovakia, Nigeria, Mexico, Poland, Italy, Ghana, Taiwan, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Serbia, Germany, Dominican Republic, Uruguay, and the U.S. The award-winning choir has toured annually since 1971 with over 1000 appearances in the United States, Canada, and Europe. The choir has performed in the Kauffmann Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, and three times in Carnegie Hall, NYC. The choir made its first international concert tour in the summer of 2018, where it performed a 19-day tour, singing in Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, and Hungary. Both the concert choir and the elite Chamber Choir consistently receive top ratings in the state of Missouri at contests and festivals, as do many individual members who compete in both vocal and instrumental solo entries.
The choir has a singular focus--that of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music. It does this by singing a vast range of musical styles, including sacred Renaissance, German Chorales, American Spirituals, 19th-century motets, 20th-century anthems, popular world music favorites, and more. They sing an average of 30+ performances a season (in non-pandemic times), including performances on their annual domestic tour, in nursing homes, in worship services, and for numerous community events. Students who graduate from the choir are selected regularly for top choirs in colleges and universities around the United States.
The Singing Saints will be going on a mini-tour to St. Louis and performing on January 23rd - 24th.
Their annual Spring Tour will depart on Friday, March 11th and they will be performing in Illinois, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama!
