Mission Statement

The Objectives of the Birmingham Musicale are:

  • To stimulate musical interest
  • To develop the musical talents of its members
  • To give both private and public concerts in the City of Birmingham and vicinity
  • To foster musical talents in young people
  • To promote community service


The Birmingham Musicale, which began by presenting musical artists in concert, was founded in 1926.

Within its first ten years, The Birmingham Musicale became a member of the Michigan Federation of Music Clubs, a volunteer, non-profit organization affiliated with the National Federation of Music Clubs.

The organization has had a choral ensemble since its inception, and a string ensemble since 1957. Other ensembles include the Music Therapy Ensemble and the Musical Production Ensemble.

No longer is membership in The Birmingham Musicale confined to performers, as it once was. Now, associate membership is also available to all who wish to support the objectives of the club.
