MARSHFIELD — The Central Chamber Chorale board recently announced that Richard Brunson will be the music director for the Central Chamber Chorale. His wife, Mika Brunson, will serve as the group’s accompanist.
Richard currently is assistant professor of music at the University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County campus, where he conducts the symphony orchestra, symphonic band, and the concert choir.
Mika, a lecturer in music, is a tenured member of the Las Vegas Philharmonic, a frequent performer with the La Crosse Symphony Orchestra, and has played with the Central Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra.
New singers are welcome to audition for the Central Chamber Chorale’s upcoming season, for which the theme is “Celebrate Music.” Music may be performed in English, Latin, German, and other languages. Three free concerts are given in November at three different sites, all in one weekend.
Members must be able to sing, blend, follow directions, regularly attend rehearsals, and read music. Membership is subject to a “singer friendly” audition.
