Come Syng With The Elizabethan Syngers!
The Elizabethan Syngers: Evoking the Past. Entertaining the Future.
That's Syngers with a "y." Why? Because we like it!   

Do you love singing Christmas carols?  Would you love to sing Renaissance music in period attire at venues across the Twin Cities?  The Elizabethan Syngers might be the perfect choral group for you!  Our 2017 winter season is just around the corner, and we are looking for new syngers!

The Elizabethan Syngers is a volunteer ensemble open to any musician committed to a high level of music making and collaboration. Founded in 1971, we are the longest-running musical act at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. For auditions, musicality, sight singing, tonal memory and vocal agility are tested through the use of musical examples and exercises. No prepared solo is required. Auditions last approximately 15 minutes. There is no fee required for auditions.

The Elizabethan Syngers rehearse in Saint Paul on Tuesday evenings, 7-9:30pm.  Our winter season rehearsals run October-December with performances in December. Access to or purchase of an approved madrigal costume is required. Costumes may be borrowed from the ensemble or purchased independently.  All music is provided at no cost.

  • A Renaissance costume that will make all of your friends jealous!
  • There are no dues or fees associated with joining!
  • If desired, joining the cast of the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in 2018!
