Marquette Choral Society
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.
We are currently preparing for our December, 2019 concert at St. Peter Cathedral! We will be singing Charpentier's Messe de Minuit pour Noël and Rhespigi's Laud to the Nativity. Performances will be December 7 and December 8, 2019.
New members (we would love to meet you!) need not worry about an audition. The conductor will discuss voice placement with you upon your arrival. If you would like to discuss this in advance, please click here to email Dr. Colwitz. She would be happy to discuss any concerns you may have.
To register for Fall, 2019, please arrive at NMU (TFA, 250) to sign up. Registration begins Monday, August 26, 2019. Please arrive between 6 and 6:30pm to register. Rehearsals are every Monday (except holidays) from 7-9:50pm. Registration fee is $30 plus the cost of music (for a total of $60-65). (If this is a hardship for you, please let the conductor know. We do not want anyone to be excluded.)
We look forward to having you join us either as a performer or an audience member this season!
