Our 81st season, “In Our Own Backyard” is about collaboration and highlighting some of the terrific talent in our region. The season opener “Dancing in the Moonlight,” is a singer-songwriter concert featuring music by Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Queen and an original song by a talented young chorus member, Madalyn McHugh.

Madalyn’s drive for meaningful and relevant music is contagious. And there is no disputing the energy she commits to honing her art and sharing it with others. You’ll be glad to see her this October. We know we can’t wait to see where this young person goes!

"As a student pursuing a career in music, being a member of the Saginaw Choral Society has been an incredibly valuable experience for me! I was drawn to the SCS because of its strength in versatile music and performance under the direction of Jeremiah. In this concert, I have the opportunity to express my love of songwriting as well as sing alongside top notch musicians. To me, that is a night well spent! I am thankful to be a member of SCS!"
