    We are offering a new scholarship program to help you keep singing. The money is for non-music majors who sing for both semesters during the 2019–2020 academic year in the Men's or Women's Choir. You can visit with your conductor about the funds once the semester begins. No need to apply until second semester. Join now!

  • Mission Statement

    The mission of the EMU choral department is to provide opportunities for students that will lead to a lifelong passion for artistry in choral music.

    At Eastern Michigan University we seek to help twenty-first century musicians connect with composers, past and present. We believe that helping students gain artistic skills that lead to a lifetime of appreciation and understanding will enrich their lives, regardless of their selected field of study. To put it another way...We believe that music can change the lives of those who dedicate themselves to its detailed study.
