Join us Saturday, November 9 at 8 PM as the Pacific Lutheran University Choral Union presents Mozart’s Requiem in Lagerquist Concert Hall.
PLU’s Choral Union is one of the outstanding community choruses in the United States. The choir was established in 1984 to create a university ensemble that would bring together singers from the community, including PLU faculty and staff, alumni, and students. Since its founding the choir has grown to a full membership of 60-70 singers, with a touring ensemble of approximately 30-40 singers.
The choir meets one evening each week for rehearsal during the academic year and members are selected by annual audition. The choir performs three or four concerts each season. Programs are comprised of shorter choral works or major choral literature with orchestra or chamber instrumentation. The choir often collaborates with university, community, and professional musical organizations, including Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Northwest Sinfonietta.
Choral Union has appeared at many prestigious conference and festival events, toured Europe multiple times, and recorded three albums. Participants have an enjoyable and deeply moving experience as part of this ensemble. Hear what some of our alumni members—not all of them music majors—have to say about their participation.
