Ensembles

All singers work on music in diverse languages as well as styles that can range from classical to folk songs; jazz to Baroque to contemporary. The chorus hosts its own productions including Winter Concert, Spring Concert and Jazz Café as well as an annual Choral Workshop. Singers also participate in outside performances ranging from community events to collaborations with professional artists and musicians. Choral seasons start at the end of August and will usually end the middle of May.
