Ensemble (1 credit per semester)*
Elisa Cooper, director
Ensemble is an auditioned mixed choral ensemble that performs on campus and at local and regional churches. During spring break (March) the Ensemble travels on tour to other areas of the country (and occasionally Canada). Students in the Ensemble have the opportunity to sing more challenging repertoire that will help improve their musical and vocal skills. Audition required. Rehearsals are Monday/Wednesday from 3:20-4:35pm in the choir room.
Chapel Choir is a non-auditioned mixed choir that performs on campus and at local churches. Students have an opportunity to improve their vocal skills and learn choral repertoire from a variety of musical styles. Chapel Choir rehearses once a week and is open to all students.
Each year, depending on interest, ability, and availability, some of the best singers have an opportunity to participate in a smaller vocal group such as a ladies trio or male quartet. These groups perform on campus, at local and regional churches, and occasionally other local events. The groups sing on tour if all of the members are also in the Ensemble. Rehearsals are scheduled based on availability of the students and directors, Miss Elisa Cooper or Dr. Lisa Beatty.
