The Legacy Chorale, for the past 17 years, has provided high quality musical performance and education to thousands of participants in the Brainerd Lakes Area. Hundreds of people each year, audiences of ALL ages, experience our inspirational, entertaining and educational concerts. Adult singers enrich their vocal music skills through our rehearsals and performances. We partner with schools and other organizations to enhance vocal music instruction for elementary and high school youth, who also participate in our performances. We also provide up to $1,000 in scholarships annually to college students participating in vocal music classes, lessons or performances.


The 60+ members of The Legacy Chorale of Greater MN, representing 22 different communities, long to ensure the future vitality of this outstanding musical organization. Our Chorale would like to have funds in place to create even MORE opportunities for outreach to all ages and to offer additional appearances in our community!

We would Like to invite you to become a sustainer and ensure the future of The Legacy Chorale of Greater MN. We would be grateful to have you partner with us in this life-enhancing adventure!!



Every autumn, we kick off our season with a gala, performance, and silent auction. The silent auction is one of our major sources of funding. We rely on community donations for auction items and appreciate gifts of any size from businesses and individuals.

Funds raised are used to support vocal scholarships, youth education, community outreach, sheet music expenses, rehearsal and concert operating costs, professional accompaniment, and promotional efforts.

All donors to our silent auction are acknowledged and thanked at the auction display, and will be listed in the event program and in our season concert program, viewed by over 1,500 people.
