OUR MISSION ............................................. The Allegro Choral Academy is dedicated to providing a comprehensive vocal music experience to young people through the achievement of musical excellence in an environment that nurtures creativity, teamwork and the love of singing.
............................................ The curriculum at ACA is structured both to challenge and inspire students. In addition to two performances throughout the year, singers are trained in sight-reading, ear training, musicianship, vocal development and ensemble skills.
The Allegro Choral Academy expects its students to be positive leaders in their respective school and community music classes and ensembles. ACA supports and supplements the vibrant and successful music programs in the area's schools and communities of faith. Although based in the southern metro communities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, ACA is open to all singers in grades 2-8.
In addition to its musical and educational mission, ACA strives to offer a portion of its concert proceeds to a predetermined charity. By doing this, the Academy not only helps a worthy cause, but it also teaches students, firsthand, music's power to positively change our local and global communities. To date, Allegro concerts have raised over $6,000 in the past few years. To view charities that have benefited from Allegro's music, click here.

Allegro has two campuses to meet the schedules and geography of its members. Singers may choose to attend the North Campus at Rosemount United Methodist Church or the South Campus at Trinity Church in Lakeville. The two campuses combine for concerts.
More than half of ACA's budget is derived from tuition that each student pays ($345-$425 for the entire year, depending on which ensemble the student is a part of). The remaining funds are generated by business partners, ticket and CD sales, personal donors and grants. There are a limited number of need-based scholarships available. Click here for more info.
Allegro is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax deductible and extremely appreciated. Click here for more information on how you or your employer can become a Friend of the Academy and help our students achieve their musical potential.
