VocalPoint uses the power of people, art, and collaboration to tell the stories of organizations doing life-changing work. We shine a spotlight on important issues such as youth homelessness, the immigrant experience, and sex trafficking. We give 100% of performance-driven donations to a worthy cause that will make a dramatic impact in everyday lives. We have collaborated with such gifted musicians as Maria Jette, Jearlyn Steele, Copper Street Brass Quintet, Peter Mayer, the three-time Grammy-winning Sounds of Blackness, and singer/songwriter Sara Thomsen.
Our programs are multi-sensory collaborations that are unlike any other choral concerts. In our seven seasons, we have supported the work of Open Arms of Minnesota, Avenues for Homeless Youth, Neighborhood House, The Advocates for Human Rights, Upstream Arts, One Heartland, Twin Cities R!SE, and Walk-In Counseling Center. Highlights include hosting panels of the AIDS Quilt, singing with the Youth Chorale of Central Minnesota, being dazzled by the puppets of In the Heart of the Beast, and singing to the breathtaking choreography of Zenon Dance Company. We’ve commissioned pieces by Abbie Betinis and Joan Szymko, and had the honor of premiering pieces by Elizabeth Alexander and Abbie Betinis.
