Fall Family Weekend Choral ConcertJoin for the Fall Choral Concert featuring performances by the Carthage Choir, Carthage Chorale, and Carthage Treble Choir at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25, in A. F. Siebert Chapel. The concert is open to Carthage students, faculty, and staff only. Tickets are required and must be obtained in advance. External patrons are welcome to join us from home through our livestream.

The Carthage Choir, the flagship choir of Carthage College, performs repertoire in secular and sacred traditions in a variety of choral styles. Now in its 93rd year, the choir has toured both nationally and internationally, and recently won the prestigious Spittal International Choir Competition in Spittal, Austria. The choir will sing works by Juan Gutiérrez de Padilla, Shavon Floyd, Elaine Hagenberg, Carlos Cordero, Stacey Gibbs, and Owain Park.

The Carthage Treble Choir, formerly the Carthage Women’s Ensemble, has developed a strong reputation throughout the region as a model for choral excellence and typically focuses its performances on pieces by women composers and writers. This choir has premiered several new works for treble choir, including Ola Gjeilo’s “I Rise!” and Joan Szymko’s “Nothing Short of Grace.”

The Carthage Chorale is a mixed ensemble that welcomes singers of a wide range of ability and experience. The chorale periodically provides music for chapel services and other college-wide events and is also active as a concert ensemble. The Carthage Chorale traditionally participates in the Christmas Festival, the Annual Weston Noble Concert, Family Weekend Worship Service, and other events.

Events are subject to change. For more information, please contact the Fine Arts Box Office at 262-551-6661 from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
