The University Choral Union
now consists of over 300 members
who sing for many programs on
campus.
The history of this group goes
back to 1879 when a group of
choir members from four of Ann
Arbor's churches decided to unite
to, sing choruses from Handel's
"Messiah." They planned musical
evenings in association with the
women's societies of the churches
and presented three concerts.:
Membership was later extended
outside of the realm of the
churches and their repertoire was
increased by other choral num-
bers. This organization became
known as the Choral Union.
Frequent 'Messiah' Performances
Since its formation, the Univer-
sity Choral Union has performed
operas in concert form and many
choral works. During the .first 20
or 25 years the chorus gave fre-
quent performances of the "Mes-
siah" in part and in its entirety.
This oratorio has been heard
in annual" performances in Hill,-
Auditorium and for the past.13
years the annual performance has
been given in two concerts in De-
cember.
Lester McCoy trains the Choral
Union for its performanees which
consist of the "Messiah" concerts.
and the annual -appearances at
the May Festival with 'the Phila-
delphia'Orchestra. Thor Johnson
conducts the two concerts in
which the chorus appears.
Auditions for the chorus are
held in September and are open
to all University personnel and
residents of Ann Arbor.'
The Choral Union is an activity
of the University Musical Society.
The society has also sponsored a
Choral Union Series which has
grown during the past 80 years
until now 26 concerts are present-
ed during the year in Ann Arbor.
"There has never been a lesser'
number of programns than the
amount presented the year be-
fore," Gail Rector, executive di-
rector of the society, said.
