MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - An Upper Michigan choir honored a special milestone with a spring concert on Sunday afternoon.

The Marquette Choral Society celebrated its 50th anniversary this weekend. The group performed “Carmina Burana” at the Reynolds Recital Hall on the Northern Michigan University campus.

The concert was originally planned for April 23 and 24, but was delayed because of COVID. Marquette Choral Society conductor Erin Colwitz said despite the delays she is glad they were able to perform.

“It’s a little bit anticlimactic, but for the most part, we’re really excited. This group has worked really hard, they’ve been a staple in the community for 50 years and I just think it’s remarkable and noteworthy that we’ve made it 50 years. As a community chorus, really through the support of this amazing city and community in the U.P.,” Colwitz said.

The choir will be off for the summer season but plans to start again in the fall.
