Moody Chorale

Moody Chorale

Founded in 1946, the Moody Chorale has long been recognized as one of the leading collegiate choral organizations specializing in sacred music. Its purpose is to lead men and women in the worship of our Creator and Redeemer by ministering the Word of God through music, Scripture, and personal testimony. The repertoire includes a broad range of music, chosen from all periods of music history.

The Chorale regularly tours around the United States and overseas. The group has ministered in Australia, Europe, the Far East, Central America, and Israel.
