Chamber Singers

The premier choral ensemble of 20-24 singers, most of whom are vocal performance majors, specializes in music from the Middle Ages to the present.  Requirements include a well-developed vocal technique, superior sightreading, and high-level musicianship. At least five concerts are presented each year, including off-campus performances and mini-tours.

Concert Chorale

This select, advanced choir of 70-80 members is primarily composed of undergraduates. The ensemble presents numerous concerts throughout the year and often joins the instrumental ensembles to perform majors works. The repertoire ranges from sacred to secular, Renaissance to 21st century, and folk songs to opera choruses. Concert Chorale is the primary performing ensemble for vocal performance and choral music education majors, who are required to participate.  Tours and off-campus events are part of the performance calendar.

Opera Workshop

The Department presents fully-staged operatic and musical theater works produced by the Opera Workshop. Students participate in all aspects of the production, including acting, singing, dancing, lighting, makeup, costuming, and stage management. Productions generally take place during the Winter Term and are accompanied by orchestra or by the staff accompanist. Roles are determined by audition and are open to the general student body.
