Intimate Settings, Inspired Singing

Auditions for the Midwest Motet Society’s Spring concert cycle have begun and continue through March 6. We are auditioning all voice types. Even if you, yourself, are not able to sing with us at this time; please pass our information on to those whom you think would like to audition.

Our venue for our Sunday, May 20, 2018 concert will be St. Paul Episcopal Church in Munster, IN, and our venue for Sunday, June 3, 2018 concert will be the Trinity Lutheran Church in Park Forest, IL, both wonderful supporters of the MMS. Our repertoire will be music by women composers from many different musical eras, an especially different and fun concert cycle for us this spring. We hope you will consider singing with us.

The spring concert theme is: “A Women’s Place: Music By and About Women,” and will include pieces by Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Clara Schumann, Amy Beach (known as Mrs. H.H.R. Beach during her lifetime), Alice Parker and Emma Lou Diemer. As well, there will be pieces by seldom performed Renaissance and Baroque women .composers.

What The Midwest Motet Society Members are saying:

“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 from Fall 2011 to Spring 2016
“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 from Fall 2011 to Spring 2016
