Word on the street…
Word on the street is that Mount Union’s Department of Music is looking into getting a men’s chorus.
Yesterday, all the young men interested in being in such a group met to discuss the possibilities.
It seems that next semester we’ll have one more choral group to show off!
This is seriously such an exciting thing for Mount Union. Getting boys to participate in choir has been like pulling teeth in the past—we never seemed to have quite enough.
This year, and for the first time in Dr. Cook’s career, we had enough men to have a 50/50 ratio between males and females. This makes for a wonderfully balanced choir, so our sound will be great this year!
With so many men interested in a men’s chorus, it looks like it got the go-ahead.
Typically, Dr. Cook keeps his rehearsals open to anyone who wants to sit in. However, all the men’s chorus rehearsals are going to be kept under wraps! During the actual performance will be the first time anyone has heard them!
This is seriously one of the most exciting musical happenings I’ve witnessed at Mount Union. It’s going to be awesome.
I hope you’re as excited as I am!
