The Marquette University Choral program is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students from all twelve colleges at Marquette University. The program includes five choirs: the University Chorus, the Women’s Chorus, the Men’s Chorus, the Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and the Gospel Choir.
The University Chorus, the longest standing choral organization on campus, is a mixed choir of fifty to sixty men and women who share their time, talents, and passion for music with others at Marquette and throughout the community. Two to four major choral department concerts are held on campus each year, such as the Family Weekend Concert and the Lessons and Carols Concert. The Chorus also presents several smaller performances at other events.
All of the women who sing in the Marquette University Choral Program participate in the University Women’s Chorus. This choir of sixty to seventy singers also participates in the two major choral department concerts each year as well as several smaller performances on campus or in the community.
All of the men who sing in the Marquette University Choral Program participate in the University Men’s Chorus. This choir of forty to fifty singers, new to campus in the fall of 2008, will also participate in the two major choral department concerts a year as well as several smaller performances on campus or in the community.
The Vocal Jazz Ensemble is a vocal group comprised of about 12 men and women. This group performs a variety of jazz, big band, and popular tunes both a cappella and with accompaniment.
All singers are welcome! Placement interviews, by appointment, are conducted the first three days of each term. Appointment sign up sheets will be posted on the Choral office door in the lower level of Varsity Theater.
