Millikin University Choir Concert - CANCELLED due to weather!
The choir, from Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, will perform as part of its annual winter tour, showcasing its reputation for innovative programming and tonal variety with repertoire spanning five centuries.
The Choir owns an extensive touring history that includes performances in Scandinavia, Russia, Haiti, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, China, Taiwan and England. Additionally the Choir has several CDs to its credit, including the 2009 live recording of the 50th annual Vespers at Millikin, a tradition that attracts 7,000 annually. Their recent appearance at the National Convention of the American Choral Director’s Association garnered new attention to the Choir’s approach to tone.
The Millikin University Choir is under the direction of Dr. Bradley Holmes, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies. He has led the choir since 1991.
Millikin’s School of Music offers a wide variety of degree programs and fields of specialization. The University Choir is one of five traditional choral ensembles involving over 250 students. Choir members are chosen after highly competitive auditions among the student body and represent a variety of majors.
Millikin, an independent coeducational university, offers the diversity of a large university and the personal attention of a small college with more than 50 academic programs in its four colleges: College of Arts and Sciences, College of Fine Arts, College of Professional Studies, and the Tabor School of Business.
