The choral group is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of three separate ensembles:
- Bravura Performance Ensemble: touring and recording choir for girls in high school
- Ragazze Ensemble: training and performance choir for 5th-8th grade girls
- Men of Spirito! Ensemble: performance choir for men who are 18 and over
For most singers, music involves notes, weekly rehearsals and concerts. For Spirito! Singers, music is a way to give back to the community. The members of this west suburban choir believe that music is a way to improve themselves and their surroundings. Sharing their talents means, quite literally, sharing with the audience.
Spirito! Artistic Director, Molly Lindberg put it like this: “Music increases our emotional bandwidth. That’s what makes it so transformative.” She explained that the goal is to empower the members of the group to have an impact in their communities.
Spirito! was founded not only to teach the value of music, but also to demonstrate the importance of service. Choristers are a fundamental part of the group’s mission, one that creates an atmosphere built on responsibility and respect, where members are appreciated for who they are.
The Spirito! lineup for the 2016-2017 season includes singers from 53 schools, representing 27 communities. Each group rehearses once a week at locations in Elmhurst, Downers Grove, and LaGrange. All ensembles perform individually and jointly at two major seasonal concerts in December and May, as well as at churches and community events throughout the season.
We at Elmhurst Toyota support the Spirito! Singers as shining examples of community spirit. Their love of singing and commitment to sharing their gifts with us is a true inspiration.
