Midwest Winter Tour 2024

Author: The Notre Dame Folk Choir

This January, join the Folk Choir for a Winter Tour, featuring concerts in Toledo, Detroit, Findlay, Dayton, Columbus, Indianapolis, and Fort Wayne. The Folk Choir serves the University of Notre Dame as one of its principal liturgical choirs, singing every Sunday during the academic year at the 12:00pm liturgy in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The sixty-plus members of the choir come from a variety of academic disciplines, and are brought together by a shared love of music and a desire to practice, explore, and share their faith. Following the example of Blessed Basil Moreau, the choir aims to unify the hearts and minds of both our members and the congregations we serve through our song.

The Notre Dame Folk Choir was founded in the late 1970s and quickly moved beyond the conventional definition of a “folk” group. The choir works to bridge the gap between contemporary compositions of a post-Vatican II church community and the rich expression of traditional choral repertoire.

Our musical offerings have been gathered from numerous cultural traditions, and a special emphasis is placed on contemporary music. Many of the pieces in our repertoire have been composed and arranged by the choir’s directors and a variety of other composers active in the field of sacred music. The Folk Choir has recorded and released fourteen albums and has traveled to five continents, with recent tours to East Africa and Israel.
