The Morningside Symphonic Chorus (previously known as the Master Chorale) is a community choir open to anyone who wants to sing in a choral ensemble and perform incredible works of music by new and historic composers. The chorus will have section leaders and study aids available to assist with learning the music.

All are welcome to sing in the chorus, which will include new members, Morningside University students, local music educators and musicians, and former Master Chorale members. You do not need to be affiliated with Morningside or have an extensive musical background to be part of the choir – the Morningside Symphonic Chorus is for any Siouxlander who wants to learn and share music with our community.

The Fall 2023 repertoire will include the Requiem of Maurice Durufle and a world premiere by David Sims.
