Directed by Dr. Gayle h Martin, the Choral Society is a choir of mixed voices with a membership of approximately 60 members. Singers include students enrolled in Music and other Mount Allison programs, faculty and staff members from the University community, as well as singers from the Sackville, Amherst and Moncton areas. We hope that we may accommodate anyone with an avid interest in, and a commitment to the art of choral singing. The music varies from large choral works to smaller pieces within a specific theme. The following are among works that have been presented by the Choral Society: Gabriel Faure's Messe Basse, Frostiana by Randall Thompson, Old American Songs by Aaron Copland, a set of works by Ben Allaway, Pinkham's Christmas Cantata, Chichester Psalms by Leonard Berntstein, Psalm 150 by Schutz, John Rutter's Gloria, The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins, spirituals and excerpts from operas.
