About

From Website
Rackham Choir was founded in 1949, when it was part of University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Then known as Rackham Symphony Choir, the chorus partnered with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in 1952, beginning a 26 year long partnership.

In 1981 Rackham Choir became an independent 501(c)(3) entity and since then, Rackham Choir has collaborated with Detroit art institutions such as Michigan Opera Theatre, Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings, and the Eisenhower Dance Ensemble. Rackham Choir has performed in several of Detroit's most famous live music venues including Avery Fisher Hall, The Detroit Institute of Arts, and The Detroit Opera House. Since 1996, Suzanne Mallare Acton has provided the creative vision for which Rackham Choir is known all across Michigan.

Rackham Choir’s mission is to bring to the community the power and energy of exciting choral works through quality concert performance.
