The Magpie Consort is a well-established, mixed-voice choral ensemble based in Columbus, Ohio. We have a diverse repertoire drawn in magpie fashion from many corners of choral music, including medieval chants, sacred and secular Renaissance gems, folk song and world music arrangements, and contemporary compositions. We also enjoy collaborating with instrumentalists, poets, dancers, and others.

Founded in 1998, the Magpies perform chiefly in and around Columbus, but we are open to invitations from further afield.

After pausing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Magpie Consort is excited to be resuming rehearsals and performances for the 2022-2023 season. To stay informed about concerts and other events, please join our email list for updates.

As we rebuild after the pandemic, we are particularly keen to hear from experienced tenors or basses – but we welcome inquiries from anyone who would like to sing.
