University Women's Choir

MUEN 134

The Eastern Michigan University Women’s Choir is a place for the treble singers of the university to develop their skills as musicians and to enjoy the camaraderie of others. Its members are drawn from every major discipline on campus. The repertoire is wide and varied, ranging from the traditional literature for treble voices to arrangements of hymns, spirituals, and folk songs from around the world. The ensemble performs
individually and with the other ensembles on campus. Most recently, the Women’s Choir was the featured treble chorus in Michigan Opera Theater’s 2017 performance of the Nutcracker at the Detroit Opera House, as well as the 2018 DSO French Fest performance of Debussy’s Nocturnes at Orchestra Hall. The Women's Choir is conducted by Professor Liza Maidens and will occasionally perform with the University Men's Choir.

Rehearsals: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 4–4:50 p.m.

"Choir is something that keeps me grounded and I knew I was not willing to give it up when I came to college. EMU Women's Choir is such an open, accepting, and inviting environment. There is a mix of music majors and non-majors and everyone gets along great! I have never felt that I was not welcome in that room. Women's Choir is truly a safe haven and a wonderful place to spend your time."
