Missoula Mendolssohn Club
Founded in 1945, the Missoula Mendelssohn Club is one of Montana’s oldest music institutions. This season marks the Club’s 68th season. The Club is a male choir whose members are broadly representative of the Missoula community, and have included active and retired teachers, professors, ranchers, lawyers, doctors, ministers, policemen, firemen, businessmen, and students. We are united by a love of singing. The Club’s repertoire includes classical, folk, and popular music.
The Club has sung in cities and towns throughout western Montana and made three tours of Europe. In 1987, the Club organized and hosted the first major international chorale festival held in the USA, the Missoula International Choral Festival. The Festival, which now has an independent board of directors, has brought singers to Missoula from over 40 countries and several US states. The festival celebrated its ninth anniversary in 2013.
