The Thurman Choir: Marsh Chapel’s Common Voice

In the spirit of Dean Howard Thurman’s visionary ministry of a ‘common ground’, The Thurman Choir is open to any and all members of the Marsh Chapel family who wish to lift their voice in song, as a community of common faith. No audition or previous experience is required, and a multi-generational experience is encouraged.

The Thurman Choir leads in worship several times each semester, joining with the Marsh Chapel Choir on festival occasions. In addition to an engaging repertoire, members of the Thurman Choir will learn fundamental vocal and musical skills, including hymn singing, music reading, and a healthy approach to singing.
