Elmer Iseler Singers 42nd Season

The Elmer Iseler Singers have been working hard to share choral music during this difficult season as we are not able to meet in person. We began putting our music to video and sharing them online on our website via our new YouTube Channel. We also moved our educational mentorship program to a virtual setting, beginning with coaching The VIVA Chambers Singers on Handel’s “Messiah” in October 2020.

We will continue to update this page with our next virtual programs and videos.

These are remarkable and unprecedented times for the world, and we are so fortunate to have music as part of our lives every day. Music will all help us move forward through these trying times and, when this difficult situation is behind us, music will help give us solace and hope for the future.

Thank you so much for your constant and caring support of the Elmer Iseler Singers.
