Dare To Breathe has won acclaim and affection for its innovative and dynamic programs since its debut in May of 1996. Its vast and colorful repertoire spans the globe and eight centuries. Concerts by the group include folk music and popular songs from all over the world, contemporary vocal chamber music, close harmony standards from the ‘30s and ‘40s, Renaissance madrigals, and musical theater, all performed with energy, polish, and good humor. The members of Dare To Breathe all have classical training and experience performing in a wide range of styles and settings. Each brings his or her own unique gifts and musical passions to create the group’s sound and personality. Dare To Breathe has recorded three CDs, premiered many new works, and is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a $25,000 Fellowship for Performing Artists last year through the McKnight Foundation and the MacPhail Center for the Arts in Minneapolis.
