MU Community Choir
The Center for Adult and Continuing Education, in collaboration with the Fine Arts Department, is delighted to announce the program for the FALL 2022 Misericordia University Community Choir. This vocal ensemble is open to all students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members in the local area. Under the direction of Matthew Rupcich, the ensemble will be a mixed chorus (soprano, alto, tenor, and bass) of singers performing repertoire from all periods, both a cappella and with chamber musicians. Rehearsals will take place on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Maslow Ensemble Room (INS 004) at Misericordia University. In addition to giving a final concert at the end of the semester, other opportunities for the choir to perform may be available throughout the semester.
Although no prior choral experience is required, participants will work with the conductor to determine appropriate placement (SATB) in the ensemble.
