There’s still time to participate in the Choral Union this semester

The Marshall University Choral Union is still seeking membership for the spring semester. The program includes Morten Lauridsen’s “Sure On This Shining Night,” Benjamin Britten’s “Festival Te Deum” and a set of six pieces by Edward Elgar titled “From the Bavarian Highlands.”

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in the choir room of Smith Music Hall (#150). The performance will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 14, on the Huntington campus in Smith Recital Hall. The MU Choral Union is an ensemble dedicated to outstanding performances of choral masterworks and serves the Tri-State community by offering to singers and audiences musical experiences that are challenging, rewarding, and fun.

“The Choral Union is a great place for someone who likes to sing and it also gives them a chance to meet other people from the Tri-State,” says director William Murphy. Murphy is an alumnus of MU and has directed the Choral Union since the Spring of 2012. “I would like to invite anyone that is interested to come and be a part of the ensemble.”
