MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY MUSICAL SOCIETY CHORAL UNION
Michigan University Musical Society Choral Union
Throughout its 125-year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world’s distinguished orchestras and conductors. Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150-voice Choral Union is known for its definitive performances of large-scale works for chorus and orcherstra. Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Composed of singers from Michigan, Ohio and Canada, members of the Choral Union share one common passion—a love of the choral art. Eleven years ago, the Choral Union further enriched its long tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in performances of Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, John Adams' Harmonium, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé and Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem and has recorded Tchaikovsky’s The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos.
