Concert Choir

Concert Choir is the University's large choral ensemble, committed to the exploration and performance of the finest choral repertoire from the 15th century to the present. This is a non-auditioned ensemble open to all students on campus. All members of the choir recognize the important role of the arts in their personal and professional development.

Entrance Requirements

  • Although this is not an auditioned ensemble, a voice placement hearing is required for entrance. One does not need to major in music to participate in concert choir. Simply register for MUSP 162 and follow the instructions for Choir Audition/Placement Hearing below.

What is a Choir Placement Hearing?

  • Most importantly, it is a chance for the choir faculty to meet you!  We also will determine into which section (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) to place you.
  • You can expect your placement hearing to include the following:
    • a quick voice range check
    • a short piece of music, such as "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" or "Happy Birthday"
    • a few listening and pitch matching exercises 
    • a simple sight-reading exercise
