The Madison Choral Singers will perform a lively program of classic and contemporary choral music at 3 p.m. March 12 at the 1858 Meeting House, 48 E. Sandusky St., Mechanicsburg, and at 7 p.m. March 12 at Shiloh Mennonite Church, 7521 Woods West Ave., Resaca.
Madison Choral Singers was formed in the 1980s by brothers Laban and Kenneth Miller with the mission of offering singers in central Ohio the opportunity to participate in a high-quality choir that sings God-honoring music in the choral tradition. The choir was revived in recent years after a few decades of dormancy.
“Laban and I get great satisfaction and pleasure from creating beauty through choral music and helping others do the same,” said Kenneth Miller. “So, we resurrected Madison Choral Singers. I love the cooperative nature of a choir. People are working together and depending on each other to create.”
Choir members are primarily drawn from Madison County, though Champaign, Clark, and Franklin counties are also represented, meeting the mission of a truly regional choir. Though the Madison Choral Singers’ roots are in the Mennonite tradition of a cappella congregational singing, the concerts will reflect the range of influences found in religious traditional music, with everything from gospel to classical choral music a part of the program.
The concerts are free and open to the public, with donations accepted to support the efforts of the Madison Choral Singers.
