This program is about the journey of a life. It begins with the exuberance of youth and moves into the difficulties we all encounter. It presses through those difficulties into trust, and ends with death, through which we all must pass to arrive at home. It celebrates the humanity God has given us, yet seeks him at every turn; for He alone can transform us into who we are designed to be, and can lead us home to himself.
Oasis Chorale is a volunteer choir made up of conservative Christian Anabaptists from the US and Canada. Our typical tour season consists of a long weekend rehearsal in the spring, and a 2-3 week tour in mid summer.
Oasis Chorale Mission Statement
The mission of Oasis Chorale is to call its singers and its audiences to thoughtful worship of the true God through artistic choral music sung skillfully.
Like all high callings, thoughtful worship requires focus and effort. Certainly the call to worship is not exclusive to music, but permeates all areas of life. In the context of church music, however, the call to worship calls participants to give careful attention to both words and music. This can be learned and must be taught, and Oasis is committed to this https://www.tradebit.comship cannot be divorced from a heart tuned to God. Oasis seeks participants eager for fully-orbed spiritual https://www.tradebit.com all artistic music is rapidly attainable for all singers or accessible to all audiences. Artistic music usually requires training to be sung excellently and to be listened to with understanding and appreciation. Oasis intends to provide the necessary training to move singers and audiences forward one step in this https://www.tradebit.comeriencing beauty in music is powerful, sometimes leaving us more enamored of the music or the performer than with the author of beauty. Indeed, by design beauty evokes from us a response of delight. But the beauty of music is an expression of true beauty; God himself is the essence of true beauty. Thus the focus of Oasis is not merely on the expression of beauty, the music, but on the essence of beauty, Jesus Christ himself. The process of bringing the music to reflect (as closely as possible within time constraints) the beauty of God, is a lengthy process and requires a great deal of commitment. We maintain that musical excellence is not an end in itself, but is a lens through which we strive to see, understand, and relate to God.
