The ASI Lucia Choir is a seasonal youth choir honoring Saint Lucia Day. A time-honored tradition, the Lucia Choir brings light to the darkest time of year through Lucia in the Mansion and Lucia Celebrations concerts. Lucia in the Mansion, which is open exclusively to ASI Members, is held in the Turnblad Mansion’s Grand Hall and is one of the ASI community’s most cherished holiday events.
Participation in the Lucia Choir is open to all K-12 youth who are ASI members. Knowledge of the Swedish language is not necessary. Participants are separated into two choirs based on age. Choir 1 is K-4th grade. Choir 2 is 5th – 12th grade.
To be eligible for participation in ASI’s Lucia Choir, participants and/or their families must meet the following requirements:
Each year, ASI selects three individuals to act as leaders within the Lucia Choir. The special roles are Lucia and two Attendants and/or Head Star Kids. The individuals selected for these roles will lead the rest of the choir in procession and demonstrate leadership during rehearsals.
Preference is given to applicants who can show current or past participation in ASI, Lucia Choir, or other Swedish and Swedish-American programs.
