Choral Union

Andrew Larson, D.M.A., Director

The Choral Union is Stetson University's largest choir. Participation is open to students and members of the community. No audition is required, but punctuality and preparation are crucial. Rehearsals are Monday evenings and last two hours. This page provides pertinent information, including information about the Choral Union, concerts, how to join and how to make online payments.

Our singers come from many walks of life and together form a vital musical community. Our repertoire emphasizes masterworks of choral repertoire, but interspersed are small works, folk songs, American choral compositions and various other styles.

History

The Choral Union is comprised of Stetson University students and members of the community. Its primary role is to serve as the university's symphonic chorus, though octavo and a cappella works occasionally complement their repertoire. The Choral Union has performed many times with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and the Stetson University Symphony Orchestra. Repertoire in recent years consists of important oratorio-type works, such as Poulenc's Gloria, Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, Symphony of Psalms by Igor Stravinsky, Beethoven's Mass in C Major, the Mozart Requiem and others of Mozart's symphonic sacred works, along with settings by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Johannes Brahms. The Choral Union's most recent chorus conductors have been Duncan Couch, Alan Raines, Peter Durow and Milburn Price.

Repertoire

The Choral Union's fall repertoire includes the Rachmaninov Bogoroditse Devo, the Vaughan Williams Festival Te Deum and the Mendelssohn Lobgesang.
