"Choral Union is one of the highlights of my week. I feel that we are getting an exceptional musical and educational experience."

-CMS Choral Union student


"MSU Choral Union is a wonderful way to experience the great works of master choral composers. You learn about the origin of the pieces and the intentions of the authors in rehearsals and cap the experience with a live performance in the Great Hall of MSU's Wharton Center. It is a fulfilling endeavor in every way!"
