Under the direction of Dr. David Brown, the Madrigal Choir performs a wide assortment of sacred music including psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, classic works, and spirituals. The choir sings a cappella, or with handbells, wind instruments, strings, or piano.
The choir normally tours for one week each year. The group takes an extended tour every other year that includes spring break, enabling travel to more distant states. The choir also performs locally, on-campus, and for regional conferences.
This is the oldest performing group on campus, founded in 1968 with 17 members and 37 bells. It now tours with 40+ singers and five octaves of handbells.
The Madrigal Choir seeks to minister for the Lord in the spiritual relationships of the choir members, university family, community, and church constituency in an honorable and edifying manner that is enriching and deepening, clear, and beautiful. Entrance is by audition only. Open auditions are held at the beginning of each fall semester.
