On Tour with the Marshall University Chamber Choir

France.3.12_211.JPG

In 2012, the Marshall University Chamber Choir toured France singing in old cathedrals and churches including the Notre Dame Cathedral. They sang an eclectic mix ranging from Renaissance music to American Spirituals to contemporary music. 

The Chamber Choir is typically made up of about 32 students, with both music majors and non-majors, and is open to auditions for new members. 

This school year, they'll be performing with the Marshall University Orchestra to take on Handel's Messiah in December, and next Spring, they'll be taking a tour of the south, heading to the Atlanta, GA area with stops along the way.
