Choirs & Voice

Vocal Studies 


Vocal Studies offers numerous choral and solo experiences for singers, all of which include students from nearly every major on campus, whether they have had prior instruction, or are just looking to begin.


We believe that diverse identities enrich our academic environment and impel us to curate performance opportunities and curricula in voice that are vibrant, inclusive, and based in current research. These principles strengthen our mission to be insightful musicians, empathic peers, and critical thinkers in the relationships we forge inside and outside the School of Music.
