The Adrian College Choir has toured throughout Europe, China and throughout the eastern United States. In 2008, the choir performed at the music festival in Beijing and Shanghai as part of the 2008 Summer Olympics festivities. In 2010, the choir made its Carnegie Hall debut performance in New York City. Recent large choral works with Orchestra include Mozart’s Requiem with John Rutter in New York City, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Beijing Conservatory Symphony Orchestra, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasie with the Adrian Symphony Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah with the Adrian Symphony Orchestra, the Faure Requiem with the New England Chamber Orchestra in New York City and Karl Jenkins’ Mass for Peace with the Adrian Chamber Orchestra. Future engagements include performances with the Adrian Symphony Orchestra, including Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana (May 2019). The choir is conducted by Professor Phillip Clark.
Adrian College Chamber Choir
The chamber choir is a select SATB ensemble. This ensemble regularly performs music in English, Latin, German, French, and Spanish. While the ensemble focuses primarily on octavos for choir, they often perform cantatas as well, including recent performances of Benjamin Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, and Vivaldi’s Gloria with chamber orchestra. The choir is conducted by Professor Phillip Clark.
Women’s a cappella Ensemble
Founded in 2018, this new ensemble is dedicated to singing a wide range of music in the popular collegiate tradition of a cappella. By audition only, this small select group of female voices rehearses twice weekly and performs at events on and off campus. This ensemble is directed by Dr. Kristin Clark.
If you would like to learn more about how to get involved with a choral ensemble, please contact Professor Phillip Clark if at (517) 264-3924 or email@example.com.
