The Market Street Singers is a choral ensemble for Ballard that builds connections within diverse communities. Celebrating the joy of choral music among singers and listeners, we aspire to cultivate neighborhood pride with choral arts that are truly community identified.

We recognize that singing builds communities and brings us and our audiences great joy. We want to share this joy limitlessly with the wider world around us. We therefore include and encourage participation by people of all races, ethnic and national origins, genders and gender identities, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, ages, and physical and mental abilities among our singers and audiences.

The Market Street Singers is a 501(c)3 organization. Your gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

The Market Street Singers is a non-audition, volunteer community choir based in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. In the eight years since our founding we have grown into a diverse group of 85 singers (and growing). We are proud of our inclusive, service-oriented vision. We seek to be an agent of change and community building through musical excellence and public outreach.

The chorus rehearses under the direction of Chris Vincent, on Tuesday nights from 7 to 9 PM, at the Ballard NW Senior Center, 5429 32nd Ave NW, in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

Musical styles range from classical to contemporary and everything in between. We present three concerts each year and sing at outreach and benefit events. There are also social events scattered throughout the year including fundraisers and an annual picnic.

Choral singers of all ages and ranges—soprano, alto, tenor, bass—are encouraged to join.

Although we are a community choir in Ballard, we welcome both singing and non-singing members, no matter where you call home.
