The Cardinal Chorale was organized in 1995 by Charles R. Snyder, inspired by the sound of Fred Waring’s renowned Pennsylvanians. Since its founding, 610 high school and collegiate singers have raised their voices in song as members of the Chorale. This July, members of the 23rd edition of the Chorale will gather at Muskingum University for a week-long workshop that will prepare them for their year of concerts and touring.
