Arenac Choraleers 1920

The Arenac Choraleers

The Arenac Choraleers

Present seasonal concerts for local communities

The group was founded in 1976 under the direction of Maynard King. They were called the Arenac County Chorus and their purpose was to perform for Arenac County’s Bicentennial Celebration. The members enjoyed it so much they asked Mr. King if they could continue singing and performing for the general public. The group performed twice a year until disbanding in 1979.

In 1980, when the Northeast Michigan Arts Council was founded, Arts Council Board Members approached Mr. King and asked if he would be interested in directing a community chorus under the umbrella of the Arts Council. He consented and the rest is history. Under a new name, Arenac Choraleers, they held their first performance in December 1980 and are still going strong today.

Currently, they perform 4 concerts per year; one in West Branch and one in Standish during the months of May and December. The group rehearses on Monday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. in the Choir Room at Standish-Sterling Central High School under the direction of Pamela Proulx.
