Celebrating their thirteenth season as the areas first ensemble of its kind, Rebelution is dedicated to unique, engaging, and challenging vocal jazz performance. They present solo and ensemble selections of jazz standards, audience favorites, and rare unpublished arrangements.

As the top auditioned co-curricular ensemble of the Champlin Park High School Vocal Music department, they meet two days each week and receive no academic credit. Rebelution performs ten to twenty times per year, either a cappella or with accompanying ensembles, in addition to appearances at regional festivals and private gatherings.

The group has been privileged to clinic with InPulse, m-pact, First Take, and Phil Mattson, performing favorite charts by Rajaton, The Real Group, Phil Mattson, and The Swingle Singers.

Rebelution is excited to be available for cabaret concerts, corporate events, private parties, music festivals, and partnering with community ensembles. For booking, please email
