Our Members

Over the past 50 years, the SAMC has become a leading promoter of the choral music and arts education in Central Minnesota. This is due to the dedication of our directors, muscians and chorus members - some of whom travel up to 100 miles to rehearse each week. From seasonal concerts to musical theater and dinner concerts, the chorus has entertained with a repertoire from classical composers to folk, pop and sea shanties.
New member information
The SAMC season kicks off the first Wednesday in September each year and the chorus welcomes new members to join us at any time during the year.
