Flint Male Chorus

The Flint Male Chorus was organized in 1943 as the Chevrolet Flint Male Chorus. At that time, most of the men were employed by the Chevrolet Manufacturing division of General Motors Corp. in Flint. Today, 62 years later, the singers come from all walks of life in Flint and the surrounding communities.

The Chorus performs music of many styles and periods, including spirituals, folk music and musical theater, as well as traditional sacred and secular pieces. Averaging 30 to 40 voices strong annually, the men sing for churches and for business, civic, and private groups throughout Mid-Michigan. The Chorus averages between 15 and 20 performances per season.

A member of the Associated Male Choruses of America and the Great Lakes Male Chorus Association, the Flint Male Chorus has performed in International Sings at Winnipeg, Manitoba; Marquette Michigan; and Buffalo, New York; and state and regional Big Sings.

The Flint male Chorus is proudly housed in the state of the art : Swartz creek Performing Arts Center, Swartz Creek High School Michigan.

Norton Male Chorus

Organized as the Buick Male Chorus in 1921, Under the auspices of the Buick factory. Dr W.W.Norton was asked to conduct the chorus. In 1923 the chorus was reorganized as the I.M.A. Glee Club under the sponsorship of the Industrial Mutual Association. This affiliation lasted until 1939 when the chorus became an independent organization , the Norton Male Chorus, taking the name of its founder and director. Dr. Norton continued as director of the chorus until 1951 when he took a position at the College of the Pacific in Stockton California.

Knights of Columbus

The Flint Area Knights of Columbus Male Chorus was established in 1964 as a recreational arm of Council #695 K of C Flint. During subsequent years, membership in the “Singing Knights” was opened to any Knights of Columbus member from the Flint area. The membership today represents Michigan K of C councils in Grand Blanc, Burton, North Branch, Ortonville, Davison, Swartz Creek, Flushing, and Mt. Morris.

The group has performed for many functions of the Knights of Columbus in Michigan such as KC night at Tiger Stadium, Cobo Hall for the International K of C convention and the state convention on Mackinac Island. The Singing Knights have also been privileged to sing at Catholic Mass in many cathedrals and churches in the state. In 1982, the group traveled to Washington, D.C., to sing at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Knights of Columbus. While there, it also performed at various Washington veterans’ hospitals. The chorus has also performed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with the only other known K of C male chorus in America. This year the group held its 30th annual Cabaret (Spring Show and Dinner Dance) in May 2012, a show that has sold out every performance for the past fifteen years.

The Singing Knights value its membership in the GLMCA and look forward each year to take part with the members of the organization in the advancement of male chorus singing in Michigan.
