About us: We are students who love to sing challenging choral music at Chapel services, college occasions, and in concerts. Our repertoire spans centuries and includes many works by historically marginalized composers.
Commitment: Rehearsals on Monday and Wednesday (4:30–6:00 p.m.) and singing at Chapel most Sundays (3:30–5:30 p.m.) Membership is a signifiant commitment as we are paid, student employees of the Chapel. Our members hold a variety of religious and spiritual beliefs, and all are welome.
About auditioning: Arrive warmed up and ready to sing. You will sing some scales and sight read a few bars of music (it’s everyone’s least favorite part, just try your best). Lastly, a few of us will teach you a short piece. Membership usually requires some previous experience reading sheet music.
