Musicorum was founded in 1995. Dr. David Taylor founded the group and served as Musicorum's first music director, from 1995 to 1999. It became well known for its December performances of holiday choral music in Mankato's Good Counsel Chapel.

Today, the ensemble has about 20 singers. The group performs many outstanding choral works that bridge centuries of composition. Musicorum holds its winter concerts each December, with spring performances the last Saturday in April. Musicorum enters this season committed to the mission that animated its founding: to bring outstanding performances of high-quality music to Southern Minnesota audiences.
