The Medina Chorus was created in 1935 as an opportunity for Medina area high school students and community singers to join in performing Handel’s Messiah. The Chorus continued to perform through the WW II years that were lean in the men’s sections, and eventually added a spring season to present lighter works each year in May. In 2001, the Chorus added more variety to its winter concerts under the direction of Kurt Sauer, and no longer performs Messiah every season.
Today’s Medina Chorus
Today’s Medina Chorus is a non-auditioned, mixed-voice community ensemble with over 75 members of all ages and backgrounds who come from throughout Northeast Ohio.
As a vibrant part of the Medina arts landscape, the Chorus performs in public concerts and outreach events throughout the community.
We are a friendly group of people who love to sing a wide variety of challenging music. In the last decade, our repertoire has included major works by Handel, Haydn and Britten, choral works by composers and arrangers from around the world, as well as the American musical theater.
The dedication of many singers and volunteers and the quality of its conductors has enabled the Chorus to bring beautiful music to the community for over eighty years!
“Life is a song – sing it!” – Sai Baba
