The Malone University Chamber Choir
The Malone University Chamber Choir is an ensemble of mixed voices. The Chamber Choir performs a variety of musical styles both sacred and secular. The Malone University Chamber Choir, under the direction of Jon C. Peterson, D.M.A., is comprised of 24 singers chosen through competitive auditions from the ranks of the Malone University Chorale. This highly selective choir performs several styles of music, from a cappella classics to contemporary small-group works.
The choir made their debut in February of 2009 when they performed Felix Mendelssohn's Lobgesang, Op. 52 with the Canton Symphony Orchestra. The Chamber Choir represents Malone University throughout the school year at area concerts and traveled with the University Chorale in June of 2010 on a tour of central Europe including concerts in Austria, Germany, and the Czech Republic. They perform as part of Christmas at Malone, a much-loved tradition on the campus of Malone University, held each year in December.
In 2011-2012, they were invited to sing for the National Association of Christian Social Workers (Pittsburgh, Penn.) and the Christian Association for Psychological Studies (Washington D.C.).
In 2013, the Chamber Choir performed throughout Italy on a 10-day tour of the country. In 2014, they are joining with the Tuscarawas Philharmonic and Chorus for a performance of Randall Thompson's Frostiana.
