The McKendree University Show Choir Program is derived of the highest vocal and dance talent in the region. You will utilize vocality, choreography, staging, costuming and production simultaneously to create a beautiful work of art. We will take all of our favorite aspects of performing arts and mold it into one cohesive and powerful show. We find strength in not focusing on musical theater or 'Glee'-esque songs, but instead of songs from all different genres, from gospel to Broadway, proving our strength and versatility. Expect great things from our show choir program as it is the highest form of entertainment imaginable.
