MSC Singers


The MSC Singers is a vocal ensemble that practices formal choral arrangements of well-known folk music from America, Canada, and the British Isles. We improve our choral voices through vocal exercises and examine the history and stories behind the choral arrangements we are practicing. If you have a good ear, a good musical memory, and choral singing experience, please consider joining us. Reading music is an asset but not a requirement. We welcome new members! This fall we will study three choral pieces that sound like folksongs but are not. (All participants must show proof of vaccination.)

A recent (Spring 2022) rehearsal of “What Have They Done To The Rain”


Music will be supplied.
