Sir Emeka Nwokedi
Artistic Director / Principal Conductor MUSON Choir

The MUSON Choir was established as a permanent group in 1995 when Mrs. Francesa Emmanuel and Sir Emeka Nwokedi, two members of the MUSON Artistes Committee, were charged with the responsibility of grooming a Choir for the Society.

Over the years, the Choir hosts and performs at various MUSON programmes which include the Passiontide and Christmas concert.

The choir’s performance of a Choral Concert is usually the grand finale of the annual MUSON Festival of Arts. On the MUSON stage in 2011, the Choir pioneered and produced “The Pirate of Penzance”, a complete English opera by Arthur Sullivan and W. S. Gilbert. The Choir also played a major role in the three-time production of Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute” with the MUSON Symphony Orchestra.
