Collegians Chorale, directed by Dr. Robert Tocheff, is one of the three choral ensembles at MVNU.

This select 40-voice mixed choir presents music for praise, worship and testimony through gospel arrangements, sacred classics, spirituals, hymns and contemporary Christian songs.

Students representing several states, a variety of academic majors and a number of different denominational backgrounds participate in the choir.

On campus, located in central Ohio, the ensemble performs in a variety of events including chapel, the annual Advent service or Christmas Festival, the annual presentation of Handel’s Messiah and at Baccalaureate, as well as presenting a spring concert as part of the MVNU Music Department’s recital schedule.

Collegians Chorale also plans a missions tour every three to four years.

Past trips have taken them to Portugal, Spain, France, Bulgaria, Russia, Hungary, The Netherlands, The Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Germany and Croatia.
