The University Choir, a group of 60-80 musicians, performs major choral works of all periods (cantatas, oratorios, masses) and other works a cappella and with piano, orchestral or instrumental accompaniment. The choir is open by audition to any student, regardless of major. Two or more major performances are presented in the fall and winter terms.

Chamber Choir

Dr. Beth Everett, Interim Director of Choral Activities

The repertoire of this ensemble is comprehensive, encompassing literature from the great choral masters of the Renaissance to the present. Folk songs and secular works are blended with both Christian and Hebraic sacred styles, complemented by works from the twentieth century and the music of Broadway.

The Chamber Choir has had many honors, including two performances at the Midwest Music Educators Conference, two highly successful tours of the southern United States, a three-week tour of Mexico that included performances with the Mexican National Symphony, a west coast tour of North America, and most recently, an extensive three-week tour of Europe. The ensemble has also had the unique opportunity to work with noted American composers Samuel Adler, John Corigliano, Mark Wilberg, Anthony Iannaccone, Stephen Paulus and Libby Larsen. This choir is open by audition to any student, regardless of major.

Rehearsals: Mon., Wed., Fri. 1:00-3:00 p.m., Room 109, Alexander Music Building
