This one-of-a-kind, formal event will celebrate MCS members, supporters and choral-music enthusiasts from the organization’s beginning to the present. The Gala will include hearty hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and musical entertainment.

Marquette Choral Society is a mixed-voice, adult choir of approximately 100 singers from a four-county region in the Upper Peninsula. MCS strives to engage, enrich, and inspire this region through the art of choral music. The ensemble was founded in 1971 by Dr. William Dehning and is currently led by musical director Dr. Erin Colwitz. The group’s 50th anniversary celebration was delayed by COVID.
