Learn About the Choir

Want to sing with a group of dynamic people? Join the Case Concert Choir and share in the excitement of making music together! Repertoire for the 2020–21season will include music from a variety of historical and stylistic contexts. Due to the ongoing pandemic, Case Concert Choir will be operating primarily in a remote/virtual fashion this fall.

The Case Concert Choir is an auditioned mixed-voice ensemble with a focus on performing both a cappella and accompanied choral music from a variety of time periods and genres. In addition to shorter pieces, the ensemble has also performed larger works of choral-orchestral repertoire through collaborations with the our University Circle neighbor institutions (Mozart Requiem, 2011; Vaughan Williams Toward the Unknown Region, 2012; Haydn Schöpfungsmesse, 2013; Bernstein Chichester Psalms, 2014; Beethoven Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt, Haydn Te Deum and Mendelssohn Magnificat, 2015; Duruflé Requiem and Quatre Motets, 2016; Handel Coronation Anthems, 2017; Rheinberger Mass and Rutter Mass of the Children, 2018). In the fall of 2018, Concert Choir collaborated with the Church of the Covenant Chancel Choir to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, presenting the world premiere of Solas by David Childs, with the composer conducting. 

Case Concert Choir was originally founded in 2004 as part of a University Presidential Initiative to support the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Case Concert Choir maintains a tradition of excellence in performance, strives to improve group and individual musicianship skills, and fosters community building. Dr. Michael Peters brings a wealth of knowledge to the podium as an experienced professional vocalist and conductor for the 2020–21 academic year.

The ensemble is open to any undergraduate or graduate student at Case Western Reserve University or CIM as well as community members. Students may choose to participate in the ensemble for 0-1 credit (MUEN 382). Auditions are held during the first week of classes each semester. Please see below for additional details.

Attend an open rehearsal during the first two weeks of class, MW 7:00–8:30 p.m. via Zoom.
