For Spirito! Singers, music is more than mere notes, concerts and rehearsals. They believe music is a means to give back to the community. The members of the west suburban choir consider music to be a vehicle for self-improvement, as well as a way to better their surroundings. They place the emphasis on sharing their talents with the audience.
Now there’s an opportunity to get involved directly, because Spirito! Singers have announced open auditions for 5th-12th grade girls for the 2017-2018 season.
The Spirito! choral group is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that consists of three different ensembles:
- The Bravura Performance Ensemble is a touring and recording choir for high school girls.
- The Ragazze Ensemble is a performance and training choir for girls in the 5th through 8th grades.
- The Men of Spirito! Ensemble is a performance choir that consists of men 18 years old and over
“Music increases our emotional bandwidth,” said Molly Lindberg, Spirito! Artistic Director. “That’s what makes it so transformative. “We want to empower our girls to make a difference in their communities.”
The reason for founding Spirito! was as much about instilling the importance of service as it was about developing a love for music. Choristers are an essential part of its mission, with the goal of creating an environment of respect and responsibility, one that fosters appreciation for each member.
For the 2016-2017 season, the members of Spirito! are comprised of singers from 27 communities and 53 different schools. Weekly rehearsals take place at locations in LaGrange, Downers Grove and Elmhurst. The choral groups perform jointly and individually at two main seasonal concerts held in December and May, as well as at community events and churches during the year.
We at Elmhurst BMW are proud to support our community. We believe the Spirito! Singers are an inspiration to everyone in our area, and we applaud their commitment to sharing their gifts with their neighbors. They are a true asset to our community.
