The South Metro Chorale, directed by Mark Bilyeu, is a community choir serving the south suburban communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Loren M. Squires founded the chorale in 1998. The chorale provides a broad spectrum of experiences and repertoire, including accompanied and a cappella music of the great masters, American folk music and African American spirituals. Jazz, Broadway, and popular arrangements are also presented at our annual "Cabaret" fundraiser.
Our mission is to achieve excellence in the performance of classical and contemporary choral music for our community. We accomplish this through outreach programs and concerts that provide entertaining and enriching experiences to both audiences and chorus members.
