The rehearsal schedule generally follows a typical academic calendar, breaking for the winter holidays and summer vacation. While we hope to have you at every rehearsal and performance, we understand that you will have various professional and personal obligations throughout the year. The IMC is happy to work with your schedule to be as flexible as possible!
The performance schedule varies from year to year, but consists of two main-stage performances at Marian University Theater: a winter holiday show and a spring concert. The group also performs at various community and philanthropic events throughout the year.
