Meridian Symphony Chorus

Dr. Kristen Gunn, Choral Director



The Meridian Symphony Chorus is an exciting group of community members ranging in age from 15-80+ years! The Meridian Symphony Chorus rehearses weekly, preparing for main stage performances with the Meridian Symphony Orchestra.

Practice. Refine. Create.


"The Meridian Symphony Chorus strives to bring music to our community in many ways; however, the most important aspect of symphony chorus is what happens within rehearsals.  Weekly rehearsals bring people of many different backgrounds together to practice, to refine and to create.  It is a meaningful process and discipline that culminates in a rewarding, live performance for our community."

The chorus is featured annually in Peppermint Pops and often performs major works with the Meridian Symphony Orchestra. 

There is no audition required to join. If you or someone you know is interested in joining the chorus, please contact Dr. Gunn.
