The Chorale (MUS 215) is an advanced chamber choir of approximately 20-24 singers chosen annually by audition. During the selection process, careful attention is given to maintaining artistic balance between sections of the chorus. The repertoire of the Drew Chorale has traditionally spanned works from the Medieval period into the 21st century. Chorale members are also expected to serve as section leaders in the Choral Union (MUS 110). For the fall 2013 semester, Chorale will rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:00-7:30p.m., as well as with Choral Union on Mondays, 7:00-9:30p.m.
In addition to performances throughout the academic year, students in Chorale are expected to remain on campus for an additional week after the conclusion of each spring semester (housing provided if needed) to perform in Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies and participate in end-of-year touring activities.
