This excerpt from last season’s Summer Singers of Kansas City performance will give you a flavor
of the Summer Singers experience.
The Summer Singers of Lee’s Summit enjoyed a debut concert in July 2014 before a standing room only audience. It is a 75-voice ensemble of the William Baker Choral Foundation, Inc., which was created in Atlanta in 1990, and now sponsors ten musical ensembles based in three states. Each year these ensembles involve over 500 men, women, and youth in the celebration of great music.
The Summer Singers is a concept that has been so successful that it has been imitated across the nation. The Choral Foundation sponsors Summer Singers ensembles in Kansas City, Atlanta, Smyrna, GA, Lee’s Summit, MO, and Cartersville, GA.
The 2015 Summer Singers of Lee’s Summit will join with distinguished soloists and members of the Kansas City Symphony to perform a concert of works by French composers, highlighted by the REQUIEM of Gabriel Faure.
NO AUDITION is required for membership in the Summer Singers of Lee’s Summit, but music reading ability is a must. Choral experience is highly recommended. All adults and mature youth are invited to participate. (Youth under 16 may participate only if a parent or guardian is also a registered member of the Summer Singers.)
