Wings of Song welcomes all women who love to sing to join a community chorus with professional standards.
Singers receive training in voice, musicianship, and performance from master conductor, Jan Pedersen Schiff. There are no audition requirements, however, singers will be asked to sing for the director to determine which voice part is best suited for their vocal quality.
Wings of Song is the founding chorus of Singers Marin. The first rehearsal was held in January of 1987, at the Strawberry Recreation Center. Its earliest mission was to perform for the elderly, singing songs that would bring back memories. That mission continues today, though the repertoire has expanded to include new compositions as well. Musical selections range from classical, to folk, to popular standards. In addition to performing in retirement homes and health care facilities, they are frequently invited to perform for various community celebrations and events. The singers have toured nationally and internationally, performing in Carnegie Hall three times, and singing in Festivals in Vienna, Austria, and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. They also performed in the Choir Olympics in Bremen, Germany, receiving a Silver Certificate for their presentation. Most recently, the singers participated in the Festival of Peace and Brotherhood, in the Castilli Romani area of Italy, and sang at the Vatican in St. Peter's Basilica as part of the Sunday noon Mass. A concert tour is now being planned for Iceland in April, 2017.
