The Bowling Green State University Collegiate Chorale is a highly select mixed choir consisting of 30-40 voices. Members study and perform a wide range of advanced repertoire in a variety of languages. The repertoire spans from the Renaissance period to 20th century compositions. The Collegiate Chorale consists principally of juniors, seniors, and graduate students. Our mission is to engage audiences with authentic and conscientious performances of sophisticated and challenging music. We seek to connect with listeners and each other intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
Over the years, the Chorale has produced a variety of CDs. The most recent, Our Carol to Sing, was recorded in 2014 and features a verity of holiday carols and pieces. The Collegiate Chorale has also made numerous OMEA convention appearances and has toured the United States, Canada and Europe. Recent domestic tours included visits to New York, Florida, Boston, and New Orleans.
In May of 2001, the ensemble embarked upon a two-week European tour with performances in Munich, Salzburg, Vienna and Prague. In December of 2002, the Collegiate Chorale returned to Europe where performances were held in Italy and France. Also during this trip, members sang High Mass at the Cathedral of the Principality of Monaco on the first Sunday after Christmas.
