The chorus will join Drake Choir to perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, also known as “Resurrection,” with the Des Moines Symphony this fall. Rehearsals will continue weekly on Tuesdays from 6:30-8 p.m. in preparation for the performance.

The Drake University/Community Chorus is a non-auditioned ensemble open to all Drake students, faculty and staff, as well as any interested singers in the Des Moines area. There is no fee for membership.
