About Manado State University Choir
The Manado State University Choir, a mixed-voice chamber choir of approximately 24 singers, has been acclaimed for its remarkable artistry, capacity to move an audience, and beautiful sound. The choir’s versatility is astonishing, performing a wide range of repertoire, from early music to contemporary pieces of the Western canon, from traditional Indonesian music with choreography to popular music, and Southeast Asian choral music. Under the direction of Professor André de Quadros the choir has continued to advance its pursuit of excellence locally in Indonesia and abroad. Previous international tours, in Austria, China, France, Sweden and more, have resulted in several prizes and awards.
