The Maranatha Chorale, a part of music history at the University, was revived in the fall of 2009 under the direction of music faculty member Daniel Birnschein and is now under the direction of Alumnus Peter Wright.
The Chorale ministers for on-campus events and chapels, area ministry opportunities, and local churches throughout the semester. This choir also joins the Chamber Singers and Madrigal Choirs for combined choir/orchestra numbers for special on-campus events.
The Chorale and Madrigal Choir were the two groups created by Music Department Chair Dr. Don Scovill when the college opened in the fall of 1968. The Chorale was renamed the Chamber Singers in 1986.
