Chorale (MUS 215)

The Drew University Chorale (MUS 215) is the Music Department’s mixed-voice (SATB) chamber choir. With careful attention to artistic balance, the members of Chorale are chosen by audition and expected to tackle a wide variety of styles, languages, and techniques. The repertoire of the Drew Chorale has traditionally spanned works from the Medieval period into the 21st century. Chorale membership is reserved for students who demonstrate music-reading ability, experience singing in advanced choral ensembles, and the likelihood of thriving in a small, chamber choir environment. Beginning Fall 2017, Chorale will rehearse on Tuesdays 6:00-8:00pm, and on Thursdays 6:00-7:00pm.

In addition to performances throughout the academic year, students in Chorale spend an additional week after the conclusion of each spring semester performing in the Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies and participating in end-of-year activities.

The first round of auditions for Fall 2017 membership will be held April 24-28, 2017. Schedule your audition here.
