Dakota Choral Union

Dakota Choral Union

Community Chorus

Based in Rapid City, SD

Dakota Choral Union was formed after a joint concert between the Black Hills Chorale, Black Hills Voices in Concert, and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Concert Choir in the spring of 1995. SDSM&T started DCU as a class on campus, led by founding director Dr. James D. Feiszli. The combined chorus, with its auditioned choral ensemble Kantorei, officially incorporated as Dakota Choral Union and has continued to share its gifts with the community under the leadership of Artistic Directors Dr. Susan L. Reid, Jerry Gates, Lois Ward, and Caroline Brown, and Dr. Charles Canaan. Dr. Jonathan Nero, Director of Choral Music at Black Hills State University, became our Artistic Director and Conductor as of 2016. The City of Rapid City began providing financial support to the group, making DCU the artistic heir of the Rapid City Choral Club, which was our city chorus a generation ago.
