The Magpie Consort is a well-established, mixed choral ensemble based in Columbus Ohio, specializing in diverse repertoire, including medieval motets and plainsong; Renaissance madrigals and sacred polyphony; 18th century Psalmody; folk song and world music settings; and contemporary compositions from around the globe.
Founded in 1998, the Magpies have appeared in and around Columbus as well as in Zanesville, Findlay, Dayton and Lancaster. Under the artistic direction of Christopher Dent since 2016, the choir has enjoyed a creative revival and continues to be one of central Ohio’s premier vocal ensembles.
The Magpie Consort presents both holiday and spring concerts featuring diverse musical selections from around the world for the 2018-2019 season. More details about this season’s holiday program, All is Calm, and the 2019 Spring program, Sacred and Profane, will be forthcoming on our concerts page.
