Welcome to The Website of The Singing Men of Northern Indiana, Inc.  

Site updated 04/17/2019



We are a non-denominational sacred men's chorus from a wide range of professions, churches and communities in Northern Indiana, including Elkhart, Goshen and surrounding communities. We are patterned on The Singing Men of Oak Brook from Oak Brook, Illinois, who have been ministering in music for more than 30 years and The Singing Men of Central Wisconsin.
 This picture was taken on January 13th, 2019 after our singing in the service of Trinity Methodist on Jackson.
