The concerts will feature a wide variety of sacred and secular selections, including works by Palestrina, Nystedt, Betinis and Paulus; music from Russia, Ireland and Argentina; and a selection of American folk songs and spirituals.

Under the direction of Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities Dr. Zebulon Highben, the Concert Choir and Chamber Singers are the premiere choral ensembles at Muskingum.
