All singers are welcome to these popular choral reading sessions that take place three times each summer.

The UMS Choral Union invites you to take part in its 25th season of Summer Sings. Just come as you are to these no-audition, no-performance evenings of memorable music-making.

As many as 250 singers from southeastern Michigan, northern Ohio, and Canada have joined each session in singing through great choral repertoire with some of the nation’s most respected choral conductors and outstanding soloists. We rehearse portions of the score during the first half, break for refreshments, and then re-convene to sing through the entire work.

Note: if you are bringing your own score, we recommend the Kalmus edition. If you do not have a score, one will be provided to you for the evening as part of your registration fee.

About the conductor

Scott Hanoian began his appointment as music director and conductor of the UMS Choral Union in July 2015. In addition to his appointment at UMS, Scott Hanoian is the director of music at Christ Church Grosse Pointe. Career highlights also include artistic director of the Oakland Choral Society; faculty member at Wayne State University; assistant organist and assistant director of music at Washington National Cathedral; and a robust career as an international touring musician performing throughout Europe, Australia, and Canada. He has recorded the complete organ works of Johannes Brahms for the JAV label.

Registration for each session begins at 6:30 pm. Sessions begin promptly at 7 pm. Admission to each session costs only $5­—less than a ticket to the movies!—­and we’ll provide the musical scores (if you need to borrow) and refreshments. Auditors are welcome to attend at no charge.
