The Middle Tennessee Choral Society was organized in 1969 to present choral music of the highest caliber. Shortly after the group became a chartered, non-profit organization in 1984, under the direction of Dr. Raphael Bundage and general manager Kay Garrison, its purpose was broadened to include education. The 100-voice MTSU Chamber Choir joined the Choral Society for its concert season in 1985. In addition, school groups from elementary through high school have periodically performed with the Choral Society since then to gain additional musical understanding in settings they otherwise might not experience. The Choral Society hosts the nationally renowned Orpheus National Vocal Competition since 1996. The competition is endowed by many generous donors, providing monetary awards to the winners, providing further support of their academic pursuits.
