Sun City Choraliers
The Sun City Choraliers is a mixed vocal ensemble. Members are accepted into the group via a simple audition for the director and a small audition committee. No preparation is necessary for this audition. The audition process is to help us determine your musical abilities including pitch, rhythm, and music reading skills. Although sight reading is helpful, it is not a prerequisite for membership. Members of The Choraliers come from varied musical backgrounds. Some have been singing in choirs their entire lives. Others played an instrument and are now singing. Still others are singing in an organized choir for the first time. All members love making beautiful music and sharing their music through performances. The Choraliers are always looking for new talent and we welcome all interested participants.
The Choraliers bring a fresh approach to choral music where we combine classic choral literature and lighter contemporary songs that leave our audiences feeling energized. Some of our more traditional choral pieces are sung a cappella while our contemporary pieces are supported by piano and drums. We keep the pace of the program moving so our audience feels their time has been well spent. We often interact with our audience and invite them to join us on some songs.
Director Jane Brambilla has been directing this group since 2009. She has extensive musical training with an undergraduate degree in Music Education from Luther College where she sang under the direction of Weston Noble. She earned her Master’s Degree in Choral Conducting and Literature from the University of Minnesota, St. Cloud. She continued her studies by attending the Voice Care Network. She spent most of her career teaching high school choral music which included classical, jazz and show choirs. She is an experienced vocal coach and an accomplished soprano soloist.
