Brigham Young University's Men's Chorus has been a vibrant part of the BYU musical tradition since its founding in 1958. With a current membership of 180 voices and a versatile literary repertoire, Men's Chorus is thought to be the largest male collegiate choral organization in the country.

History

In 1958, Ralph Woodward became the first official director of Men's Chorus, which grew out of the Male Glee organization that was founded in 1901. In 1984, Mack Wilberg assumed directorship of the program. Under his leadership, Men's Chorus became one of the nation's largest collegiate choral organizations, attracting more that 400 auditioning voices annually. In 1995, Men's Chorus' first music album, Shout With Glory, was released by Deseret Book. Two years later, in 1997, the organization released its second album, Awake, My Soul. In 2003, Men's Chorus collaborated with several other BYU musical groups to create the album The Road Home. In 2005, they released their album Praise Him. In 2011, Men's Chorus performed in the BYU Homecoming Spectacular with Brian Stokes Mitchell. In 2013, the group released its first free album, Set Apart: Beloved Missionary Hymns.
