Misericordia Community Choir open to interested singers


DALLAS TWP. — The Center for Adult and Continuing Education at Misericordia University, in collaboration with the Department of Fine Arts, invites interested singers to a Misericordia University Community Choir Meet & Greet from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 in the Maslow Ensemble Room 004 in Sandy and Marlene Insalaco Hall.

Established in 2017, the vocal ensemble is open to community members as well as all students, alumni, faculty and staff. Under the direction of seasoned conductor Matthew Rupcich, the ensemble is a mixed chorus of soprano, alto, tenor and bass singers performing repertoire from all periods, both a cappella and with chamber musicians.

Rehearsals will take place from 6 to 8:15 p.m. Thursdays in the Maslow Ensemble Room in Insalaco Hall beginning Sept. 20.

In addition to giving a final concert at the end of the semester, the choir will have the opportunity to perform at events such as Misericordia’s opening convocation, commencement, masses and holiday shows, as well as venues both on and off campus. Although no prior choral experience is required, participants will work with the conductor to determine appropriate placement in the ensemble.

To register for the choir, please contact Johnna Evans in the Center for Adult and Continuing Education at jevans@misericordia.edu, or call 570-674-3021.
