Marquette Choral Society is a mixed chorus composed of members of the community of Marquette, Michigan and its surrounding area and of students at Northern Michigan University. It was founded in 1971. Marquette Choral Society performs two major concerts per year, one in December and the other in April. Over the years, it has focused much of its attention on the large works of the choral repertoire including the oratorios of Handel, Bach, and Haydn, masses by Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, etc.
