Women's Choir

The Women's Choir provides, for any female student on campus, the opportunity to study and perform distinctive literature for women's voices including classical choral music, contemporary works, world music, folk songs and spirituals. Long-term relationships develop out of the musical experiences that are shared by choir members during rehearsals and performances.

Choir members take pride in the work they do in preparation for performances, which typically occur near the end of each semester. A highly regarded annual concert celebrating the rich diversity in the lives of women and girls is presented each spring in collaboration with Cantabile Girls' Choir and female Department of Music faculty members.
