The Madison Summer Choir is an approximately 80-voice, auditioned choir performing a cappella, piano-accompanied, and choral-orchestral works. When the UW-Madison School of Music eliminated UW Summer Choir from its budget in 2008, Ben Luedcke picked up the baton to ensure this student and community singing opportunity and tradition was not lost.
We are now supported by singers, the larger Madison community, and UW-Madison School of Music. 2015 will be our seventh year keeping summer choral arts alive – please join us on stage or in the audience!
Auditions and choir membership are open to students and community members (see How to Join). We rehearse Mondays and Tuesdays,6:30 to 8:30 pm, late May through the end of June in the UW Humanities Building (choir room, 1351) on the UW-Madison campus.
