MSC Singers is the Senior College chorus class. This group of singers practices formal choral arrangements of well known folk music from America, Canada, and the British Isles. As part of our class we study voice training through vocal exercises catering to the older voice. We also study the history of folk music in relation to the music we are practicing. This class is ideal for those who have had experience singing in a college or community choruses. For those of you who have sung with us in years past, we welcome you back. Prerequisites: If you know you have a good ear, a good musical memory, and you have a past choral singing experience please consider joining us. Reading music is an asset but not a requirement. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. No Limit

Required Book(s): None
