Thank you for visiting the Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale's website. We are very excited about the upcoming third season of the Chorale and hope we can convey that excitement and passion to you as you peruse our website.
The Music Sacra Chamber Chorale was incorporated as a Seattle area chorale in January of 2011. It is the brainchild of Bob Ingalls and a dedicated group of singers who share his vision and love for sacred music as well as a desire to serve the community. The first concert series took place on Saturday, December 10, 2011 at the Bastyr University Chapel in Kenmore.
