Women’s Chorus

Women’s Chorus

Women’s Chorus, under the direction of Dr. Alan Gumm since 2000, quickly gained recognition in the region as a choral ensemble of great finesse and artistry, with invitations to premiere several new works and to perform with the Cadillac Symphony Orchestra, Saginaw Choral Society, and with other women’s choruses around the state. A Saginaw News music critic commented on “the group’s clear sound, excellent vocal technique and magnificent tuning. The musical lines were beautifully shaped. This was expressive singing at its finest.” Works recently performed include Mozart’s Alleluia and Marriage of Figaro (jazz arrangement), Brahms’ Four Songs for Women, Harp, and Horns, and treble portions of Vivaldi’s Gloria, Randall Thompson Frostiana, and Holst’s The Planets with the CMU orchestra. Their repertoire has extended to include jazz standards such as Take Five and Mood Indigo, gospel numbers, spirituals, and arrangements of songs from cultures and countries around the world.
