The Elizabethan Syngers: Evoking the Past. Entertaining the Future.
That's Syngers with a "y." Why? Because we like it!
Are you looking for an exciting singing opportunity this summer? Do you love the idea of singing Renaissance music in Renassiance attire? The Elizabethan Syngers might be the perfect choral group for you! Our 2019 Summer Renaissance season is just around the corner and we are holding auditions for all sections-sopranos, altos, tenors and basses!
The Elizabethan Syngers is a volunteer ensemble open to any musician committed to a high level of music making and collaboration. The Elizabethan Syngers perform Renaissance period secular and religious pieces a capella. All music is memorized. Performances are theatrical and engage the audience. Acting experience is helpful but not requried. 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 Summer season rehearsals run from mid-May to mid-August. Performances are weekends, August 17-September 29 at The Minnesota Renaissance Festival. You are not required to sing every weekend. Access to or purchase of an approved Renaissance costume is a necessity. Costumes may be borrowed from the ensemble or purchased independently. All music is provided at no cost.
