CHORALE MUSIC IN NORTHERN MICHIGAN THAT MOVES OUR SOULS.
The Northern Michigan Chorale returns to the stage at the Great Lakes Center for the Arts November 20-21, to entertain you with patriotic songs of gratitude, uplifting Broadway selections, and inspiring music from Burt Bacharach, Simon & Garfunkel, and Lerner & Lowe. The program includes exciting choral arrangements of many Holiday favorites, bringing joyous music alive for the audience.
The Chorale is celebrating their 39th season of performances, both spring and fall. We began as sixty voices at the first rehearsal and have now grown to a group of seventy-plus. Our members range in age from teens to senior citizens. Continuing, as in the beginning, with a non- auditioned base of volunteers, our members represent Petoskey and many of the surrounding towns including Harbor Springs, Cheboygan, Charlevoix, Boyne City, Ellsworth, Gaylord, Cross Village and Brutus! The Chorale awards Vocal Music Scholarships each year to all ages of area residents who want to improve their singing.
Music enjoyed by the Chorale and their audiences is comprised of songs from Broadway musicals and from arrangements of composers: Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, John Lennon & Paul McCartney, plus Simon & Garfunkel - to name a few. Crooked Tree Arts Center presented the Northern Michigan Chorale the 2007 eddi Award for Arts and Cultural Organizations for the benefit of the citizens of Charlevoix and Emmet Counties.
