Under the direction of Dr. Richard Schnipke and with accompanist, Michael Gartz, the Bowling Green State University Collegiate Chorale (Bowling Green, OH) is a highly select vocal ensemble comprised of undergraduate and graduate students primarily majoring in music. The Chorale strives for the highest level of musicianship, performing challenging and exciting repertoire each semester in order to captivate and inspire their audiences. This varied repertoire spans centuries and continents, including music by time-tested greats like Hans Leo Hassler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Johannes Brahms, as well as contemporary composers including Craig Hella Johnson, Jake Runestad, Eric Whitacre and Gwyneth Walker. With the support of the College of the Musical Arts, the Collegiate Chorale also regularly commissions new works for BGSU Choral Series. This year, the Chorale is excited to be partnering with Dominick DiOrio on a work that will be premiered later this spring. As ambassadors of the university, the ensemble tours annually, bringing their performances to various churches, schools, and communities across the country.
