Enriching the cultural landscape through a commitment to choral excellence.
Founded in 1980 under the name of the F-M Chamber Chorale, The Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists (FMCA) performs choral music of all artistic styles and musical periods. This auditioned ensemble represents a diverse range of ages, professions, and walks of life and is dedicated to enriching and enhancing artistic communities within Minnesota and North Dakota.
FMCA rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings from September to April. The choir presents three subscription concerts and an annual benefit concert. In addition to these concerts, FMCA regularly collaborates with the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra, providing our singers the opportunity to perform major choral and orchestral repertoire.
As a border choir, FMCA has been featured on both sides of the Red River at the Minnesota Music Educators Convention, the Convention of the North Dakota Music Educators, and the Region V Convention of the American Guild of Organists. In 2016, The Fargo-Moorhead Choral Artists was named the 2016 Arts Organization of the Year by The Arts Partnership.
Auditions for the 2023-2024 season are closed. If you would like to get onto an audition waiting list for future seasons, please email Michael Culloton at firstname.lastname@example.org. The audition consists of standard exercises such as melodic and rhythmic sight-reading, pitch recall, and a range check.
We encourage people of all races, ethnicities, abilities, and gender identities to consider auditioning.
Our 2022-2023 roster includes a talented and diverse group of individuals from across the Red River Valley.
