Choral Union accepting new members

Marshall University’s Choral Union is looking for interested singers for the 2013-2014 season.

This fall, the choir will be performing Anton Bruckner’s Mass No. 2 in E Minor for eight-part choir, which will feature an instrumental ensemble of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, trumpets, horns and trombones.

The group will be under the direction of Robert Wray, associate professor of music.

“The Mass in E Minor is a work of inspiration and incredible artistry,” Wray said. “Composer Anton Bruckner combined wonderfully his unique approach to harmony and counterpoint with many of the traditions and sounds of the older sacred music he cherished.”

Rehearsals will begin on Monday evening, Sept. 9, and take place each Monday evening from 7 to 9 p.m. in Smith Music Hall, Room 150. Music will be available for purchase at rehearsal. Music reading skills are a plus, but not necessary, and any singing level is accepted, Wray said.
