Vocal Ensembles

Concert Chorus

Our largest choir which performs one or two major choral works each semester.  Participation is open to all students with no auditions. Dr. David Hedrick directs this ensemble.

University Chorale

This auditioned SATB touring choir specializes in shorter choral pieces.  Approximately forty members are chosen by audition each August to function for the entire academic year.  The Chorale tours in the eastern United States each year and also makes an overseas tour every three or four years.  In Fall 2012, the Chorale toured Western Kentucky. Contact Dr. Alcingstone Cunha for more information.

Chamber Choir

The Chamber Choir is our most select choral group since 8-12 members are chosen from within the University Chorale. This ensemble focuses on music beyond the scope of either Concert Chorus or University Chorale such as early music, 20th-Century classical music, secular music from all periods, popular music, and even humorous pieces, as well as medium-length choral works.  Dr. Alcingstone Cunha directs.

Handbell Choir

One of the few college handbell choirs anywhere (and one of the oldest), with ringers selected by audition each August.  In addition to separate concerts during the year, the Handbell Choir joins the University Chorale for their annual tour. Dr. David Hedrick directs this ensemble.
