A group of Macomb college scholarship students, The Macombers are one of the finest show choir in the state. Michigan's oldest college show choir, founded in 1970, has grown in emphasis and stature. Although constantly changing its musical selections and member, The Macombers continue to receive rave reviews.
Currently under the direction of Harvey Kahl, the 12-18 member group performs dozens of shows a year throughout the Detroit area and beyond. The highly choreographed show choir ensemble has appeared with professional performers such as The Chieftains, Neil Sedaka, Judy Collins, Marvin Hamlisch and Tom Jones. As the Goodwill Ambassadors of Macomb Community College, The Macombers perform for everyone from American Presidents and major corporations to local school children.
Members of The Macombers use this two-year scholarship opportunity with Macomb Community College to prepare for transfer to universities, to update occupational skills and to explore new careers. Many former members continue their careers as professional entertainers on cruise ships, television and stage. Even more use their Macombers experience to become teachers and leaders in business and the community.
