About Vocalpoint! Seattle

Seattle appeared in Seattle Symphony performances of Legend of Zelda, “Music of the Mad Men Era,” Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Berlioz’s Damnation of Faust and Orff’s Carmina burana. In December, Vocalpoint! Seattle will again join the Northwest Boychoir in their annual presentation of A Festival of Lessons & Carols, including a final performance presented by Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall.

High school-age men enter Vocalpoint! Seattle as graduates of the Northwest Boychoir. High school-age women enter Vocalpoint! Seattle as graduates of our Vocalpoint Foundations program. Visit our audition page to learn more about the audition process.

Led by Jacob Winkler as music director, the Choir’s staff of professional musicians and educators are engaged in the teaching of a rigorous curriculum that trains young singers to be fully skilled musicians who sing at the highest professional level, read music fluently, and perform in professional settings with confidence.

Where the music never gets old!

We attended our first concert last night and were 'blown away' by the musical quality, direction, arrangement and the stage presence of the singers. WOW!

Audience Member

I was so incredibly thrilled to work with the fine young gentlemen of Vocalpoint in my recent concerts with the Seattle Symphony. When I first met and heard them, I was blown away by the fact that these guys were still in High School! They have a musicality, sense of pitch, and professionalism the belies their years. I'll happily work with them again...anytime and anywhere.
