2023 Northwest Alumni Choir Weekend Registration

Northwest Missouri State University vocal ensemble alumni are invited to join the Northwest Tower Choir in their performance with the Bearcat Marching Band at the October 7th football game. It is Military Appreciation Day, and the choir will perform an acapella arrangement of the Star-Spangled Banner during the pre-game, and sing “Veterans’ Salute” with the BMB during half-time. We will have a block of tickets reserved for Tower Choir and alumni registrants.

In addition to Saturday’s performance, Dr. Adam Zrust, assistant professor of choral music education, will be hosting a Beer Choir event at the Black Pony Brewing Company on Friday evening, October 6th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (RSVP unnecessary).
