OUR 40th ANNIVERSARY
~ COME, HELP US CELEBRATE LIVE CHORAL MUSIC ~
"Heartland Holidays" features uplifting selections honoring our veterans and our unsung heroes !
The Chorale will sing many exciting new arrangements: remembering the Edmund Fitzgerald and bringing JOY to the world with cherished Christmas selections!
The Chorale is celebrating 40 seasons of performances, both spring and fall, PLUS special concerts by arrangement.
Beginning with sixty voices at the first rehearsal with founding director, Don Large, the group just keeps growing, thanks to YOU.
Members range in age from teens to senior citizens and are a non-auditioned base of talented singers from Petoskey and many surrounding towns including:
Harbor Springs, Cheboygan, Charlevoix, Boyne City, Ellsworth, Torch Lake, Gaylord, Cross Village and Brutus!
Recognized as "Best Arts and Cultural Organizations for the Benefit of the Citizens of Charlevoix and Emmet Counties", the Crooked Tree Arts Center presented the NM Chorale their 2007 eddi Award.
Music enjoyed by the Chorale and their audiences is comprised of popular songs and newer choral works; both from Broadway musicals and arrangements of composers:
Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, John Lennon & Paul McCartney, Simon & Garfunkel, Motown - plus newer choral works by upcoming songwriters.
Vocal Music Scholarships are awarded to all ages of area residents who want to improve their singing. Scholarships may be used for private voice lessons or summer music camps!
JOIN US As a non-auditioned chorus, we welcome all singers to attend our rehearsals, as we prepare for our upcoming concerts at the Great Lakes Center for the Arts in Bay Harbor.
In looking back, we have a chance to look forward and in so doing, the Northern Michigan Chorale truly knows the meaning of the song …. “We’ve Only Just Begun”
