On February 10, 2024, 8 singers from the Merrimack College Concert Choir, along with their director Hugh Hinton, took part in the Massachusetts chapter of the American Choral Directors Association (Mass ACDA) Big Sing/Intercollegiate Choral Festival held at Endicott College, Beverly, MA. This was the first time the annual choral festival was held since the pandemic. Singers from UMass Lowell, UMass Boston, Endicott College and Merrimack College gathered for a day of rehearsals and camaraderie.

At the end of the day, Mass ACDA presented the fruits of the 2024 Intercollegiate Choral Festival collaboration at an evening concert highlighting the choirs of all the colleges singing together as one combined mass chorus. The work,  “Chariot Jubilee,” was performed. This work, composed by African American composer Nathaniel Dett, featured the internationally acclaimed tenor soloist, Julius P. Williams III, and was conducted by Anthony Trecek-King, resident conductor for the Handel and Haydn Society

The video of the performance can be seen at the Endicott College livestream.
