Due to COVID-19, auditions for the 2020-2021 Madraliers/Northwest Celebration are to be submitted by video recording before Monday, August 10.
The Madraliers and Celebration Show Choir is a highly select ensemble which explores music representing many styles and historical periods. The Madraliers perform music spanning a time frame from the 16th century through contemporary composers. A highlight of the fall season is the annual Yuletide Feaste on the Northwest Missouri State University Campus. This festive event, performed in period costumes, is a wonderful way for the community to celebrate the holidays.
In the spring, the ensemble becomes the Celebration Show Choir, presenting an exciting variety of choreographed numbers, vocal jazz, and ballads. A highlight of the spring semester is the Annual Spring Show, presented on campus in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts. This event brings an exciting semester to a climax with an energetic performance of singing and dancing.
The Madraliers/Celebration ensemble takes tours throughout the academic year. Tours in the past have included visits to New York, California, and Mexico.
