Cardinal Chorale hosts concert series, workshop on campus

Cardinal ChoraleThe Cardinal Chorale, a select group of singers and musicians chosen from across the state of Ohio, converged on our campus for its third annual music workshop, July 22-29. As part of the workshop, the Chorale also hosted five public concerts, featuring a variety of musical guests.

Modeled after similar workshops held by Fred Waring and his staff, the week-long workshop provided young singers development in body, mind, spirit, and voice. Rehearsals were focused on study and master repertoire, explored interests in elective and workshop sessions, and built lifelong friendships with other singers and the Chorale staff. The workshop began the Chorale's 23rd annual season, which typically includes concerts in December, February, and a six-day tour in June.

The Chorale’s concert series included a number of musical guests, including Len Thomas, a Muskingum alumnus and former music director and conductor for Fred Waring’s renowned Pennsylvanians, to The CoshocTONES, a men’s quartet from Coshocton.

The Cardinal Chorale was organized by Charles R. Snyder in 1995, and based on the sound of Fred Waring’s Pennsylvanians. Since its founding, more than 550 high school and collegiate singers have raised their voices in song as members of the Chorale.
