I have listened to the Twin Cities Masters Chorale on several occasions. Their music is beautifully done. They have sung in several different venues, including Benson Great Hall at Bethel University and Wooddale Church. They are very professional in their appearance and conduct and I look forward to another chance to hear them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I have heard some of the most moving musical scores since my early 20's. Moved to tears!!!

I have sung with this group for six years. In that time, it's afforded me the opportunity to meet and sing under two competent conductors with talented people from the Twin City area who have a similar commitment to singing sacred choral music. TCMC has given me the opportunity to perform both familiar and new choral works in an environment of education, friendship and fun.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be the benefactor for other such groups.

I have been a TCMC member for about 7 years now and have loved every moment of it. Everyone in the group loves to sing and to sing this wonderful music. It is a service to our almighty Master that is a joy for each of us.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

singing concerts at a level at which I can be proud.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Perhaps have sections leaders who are capable of leading sectional rehearsals. At this point we only separate into 2 sections for such rehearsals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Singing regularly. I know of no greater joy.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people of the highest caliber.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

hire intrumentalists as a regular part of our organization and also expand it's publicity to increase those our audiences. Allowing more people to enjoy this groups performances. We could also rent and be able to perform in different venues.

Ways to make it better...

intrumentalists/orchestra could have been added more often.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financing and attracting younger singers as the group ages.

One thing I'd also say is that...

That choral music must not be allowed to fade out of existence. It is an art form that allows too many to be exposed first hand to the greatest music ever written.

This choir has a great group of singers! The music they sing in top notch. From my college choir days I sang much of the music I have heard from this group. It's good to hear Great Christian music sung since our church choirs are no longer the strength of the church.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people and the way it makes me reflect on my faith and where I fit in this world

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

They could go on tour

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Twin City Masters Chorale is a 48 voice mixed choir that sings classical Christian music. As a member of the group for four years, it is a high point of my week to rehearse wonderful music under the direction of Ken Fenton. We prepare well for the concerts mostly held in churches. What do I love? 1. The wonderful music we sing 2. The congenial, semi-professional and professional singers who make up the choir and produce a wonderful sound. 3. The opportunities we have to perform for the praise and glory of God. 4. Last but not least, our director who does an excellent job of selecting our music, directing us, and leading the organization. A TCMC concert will be a delightful and unforgettable experience. IT is a privilege and honor to be a part of this excellent group.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

weekly rehearsals and occasional concerts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a promotion manager to assist the director. More concerts and larger venues would add to the joy and fulfillment of us all.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful music we sing, great colleagues to be with, and an excellent director.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

share it with other musical organizations.

Ways to make it better...

our rehearsal place was more centrally located. I drive 46 miles round trip

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Financial. WE are a dues and offering driven organization.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We are always looking for additional, experienced singers, who want to sing Christian classical music for the glory of God.

It is a joy to be director of a group of excellent singers who are fully committed to their task of promoting and preserving great sacred choral music in the church. Even after presenting over 100 concerts in area church, schools, and retirement centers, they have not lost their enthusiasm for beautiful music that inspires the soul.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with individuals who are totally committed to the task of creating beautiful and inspiring music.
