 Millikin University Choirs

Mixed Choral Chorus from Decatur, IL, United States.

Showcasing its reputation for tonal diversity, the University Choir is garnering wide acclaim for it's varied styles and unique programming.

The Choir's extensive touring history includes performances in Scandinavia, Russia, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, England, China and Taiwan. This summer the choir is planning a Celtic Tour of Scotland and Ireland.

The choir's new CD, Hearts All Whole (2010) is available through First Step Records. In addition, the choir has several other CDs to its credit, including last year's live recording of the 51st annual Vespers at Millikin, a tradition that attracts 7,000 annually.

Millikin University Choirs : From The Heart

Review: The choir is an auditioned mixed ensemble of 36-42 voices. The choir was created in 2000 for the study, performance, and recording of "gems" from the standard choral repertoire. This CD is a sampling of the repertoire the choir has performed over the last five years. Chamber Chorale is one of two touring choirs at Millikin. The group conducts an annual tour of the Midwest in January with occasional travel to other parts of the country. The Chorale, together with five other traditional choirs forms the core of the Millikin choral program - a program with over 300 singers, 3 vocal jazz groups, two early music consorts, and a plethora of student-created ensembles.

Songlist: Alleluia, Silent Devotion and Response, Magnificat, Ave Maria, Pilgrims Hymn, Caritas, There Is No Rose, Witness, Set Me As A Seal, Six Dickinson Miniatures - Heart, we will forget him!, Six Dickinson Miniatures - I took my power in my hand, Six Dickinson Miniatures - I died for beauty, Come to Me, My Love, O Shenandoah, Light Hearted Lovers, Wade in the Water, If Music be the Food of Love, Peace I Leave with You
