Exalting God with our hearts and our music
Michigan Singers started in 1980. We are young people from all over Michigan who like to sing and play instruments in order to grow and witness for God. Our practices start in September and continue once a month leading up to our concert season. Then in March, we begin doing concerts on one weekend a month until we reach the pinnacle of our season - a week-long tour taking place in July. The average age of our choir members is approximately 16 years old. We travel with about 10 adult staff but varies based on how many choir members we have.
Michigan Singers have performed at Mt. Rushmore, the Grand Canyon as well as many churches and parks throughout the United States. We are a highly motivated group with a purpose. Our hope is that attending one of our worship concerts is an exciting experience that leaves you feeling hopeful, loved, and full of joy.
Our group was founded by Pastor Richard Forsman of Grand Junction, Michigan. He has been directing young choirs and musicals since 1961, having premiered some of the first contemporary Christian musicals.
"Working with young people who love music and most of all have a relationship with God is the most exciting thing I can think of." says Forsman, who is now 84 years old. "The young people amaze everyone with their commitment and witness. Each young person must sign a commitment form as well as provide a pastoral and music reference. They are responsible to learn their music and choreography and participate in at least one other task with the group. They pay a good share of their own expenses along with money donated from churches and individuals."
The 2023 Michigan Singers
We travel with all our own sound and lighting equipment. Music is provided by a band of professional musicians that are also committed to this ministry.
Over 1,000 young people have participated in the Michigan Singers since it started over 40 years ago, and the ministry continues to this day.
Does this sound like something you'd like to be a part of? Applications are accepted for students over the age of 13. Become a part of a ministry that will change your life and change the lives of others.
