The Birth of Extraordinary
With passion, dedication and exceptional standards, Spirito! was begun in 2008 – with Molly Lindberg’s vision of creating a youth chorus of the highest caliber that would develop musicianship and vocal technique in young people. Molly trains using a challenging repertoire and offers valuable educational experience for all singers.
Spirito! Singers will open its 11th season (2018-2019) with 227 auditioned choristers. The continued expansion of the Ragazze ensemble (5th – 8th grades) increases the geographic diversity of our ensembles – which now include singers from 61 schools in 30 communities around Chicago. The Men of Spirito! is an auditioned ensemble for men 18 years of age and older.
Spirito! offers young singers between 5th – 12th grades the opportunity to learn and grow through exceptional vocal and musicianship training, discipline and performance.
Weekly classroom instruction provides singers with curriculum based, multi-level music theory.
All ensembles cultivate citizenship by participating in service projects and community events.
Major concerts each year offer multi-generational performances as three ensembles join together for selected repertoires.
