The Thiel Choir is the main performing choir of the College. It tours annually during spring break to all regions of the eastern United States and Canada. Once every four years, the choir makes an international tour. The choir performs at Thiel convocations, at area churches, sings at the Thiel Christmas Festival and joins with area community singers each spring to perform oratorios, cantatas or other larger choral works.
Membership is open to Thiel students and selected Thiel High School Scholars through an audition process at the beginning of each semester. Contact Dr. Michael Bray for more information.
Most recently, the Thiel Choir toured to Scandinavia and St. Petersburg, Russia in 2004 and to Austria and northern Italy in 2008, and most recently a 20-day "Western States Tour" in May of 2012 on which the choir performed nine concerts in Ohio, Minnesota, South Dakota, Colorado, Montana and Oregon. The tour repertoire celebrated life on the prairies with a Native American focus. In May 2016, the Thiel Choir is looking forward to its next European tour with plans to visit Ireland, Wales and England on a "British Isles" tour.
