A mixed ensemble of approximately 40 singers, the Chorale has been a part of the college since its’ founding in 1932.  In addition to its’ annual spring tours, the group appears regularly in campus programs such as the Winter and Spring Concerts.

The Chorale’s church and Christian school programs include a richly varied repertoire of anthems, spirituals, and classical standards.  Student vocal and instrumental soloists included among choral numbers have created a performing tradition of musical contrast and textual integrity.

Mark your calendar for Friday, March 14, to come and listen to this wonderful chorale.  The concert begins at 7:00 p.m.
