Quotes from Current Midwest Motet Society Members

“Marie Amenta has a rich knowledge of the composers who truly love the choral instrument. She programs gems of pieces that are as fun to sing as they are to listen to.”– Ruth Hansen, MMS Mezzo-Soprano

“Rep is key. Many groups repeat much of the repertoire from year to year, but I look forward to each MMS season and being presented with new music to challenge and thrill me.”– Kari Coventry Smith, MMS Soprano

“I haven’t sung music at this level, with this attention to detail and professionalism, since college. Everyone on the South Side, and beyond, should get out and hear it, because it’s an incredible treat when it’s performed at this level, and it simply isn’t done very often at all these days.” –Russell Hansen, MMS Baritone
