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.
The Marquette Choral Society will perform a newly commissioned work by local composer, Griffin Candey, with texts by Walt Whitman, Anastasia Pennington-Flax and local area poet, Kathleen M. Heideman. THE NIGHT PSALMS will premiere alongside Ralph Vaughan Williams epic major work DONA NOBIS PACEM, also on texts by Walt Whitman.
