The University Chorus is the largest vocal ensemble on campus. Among its 90 to 120 members are undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff members, and singers from the Hyde Park and University community. The result is a wonderfully diverse group of vocalists who collaborate in performances of great monuments of the literature and also explore diverse world music traditions.
Each season, the University Chorus presents three to four concerts, including performances of classical repertoire from all time periods, repertoire from polyphonic singing traditions around the world, and music from a variety of American choral traditions. In the spring, the University Chorus often joins with the University Symphony Orchestra for a festive year-end performance, recently featuring such masterworks as Berlioz’s Roméo et Juliette, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, and Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem, and Sir Michael Tippett's A Child of Our Time.
