University Chorale is a soprano-alto choir that performs literature from various time periods. Through the study and performance of diverse musical expressions that represent a variety of historical and cultural perspectives, students participating in University Chorale develop the knowledge, skills, interests, values, and attitudes associated with individual and ensemble musicianship and artistry. Students have the opportunity to enhance their skills in singing, listening, and artistry. In a broader sense, University Chorale serves composers, performers, and listeners by presenting choral performances of the highest quality possible. Class activities promote music literacy, involve students in kinesthetic activities to help them connect physically to music, and prepare students to become independent musicians.
University Chorale joins other university choirs for concerts several times each year. In addition to their dedication to the performance of high-quality treble literature, University Chorale has also performed larger works with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and Omaha Symphony Orchestras. They have been invited to sing for state, regional, and national conventions of the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Conference (now the National Association for Music Education).
Auditions: Membership is open to any soprano or alto singer enrolled at the university. University Chorale is a non-auditioned group and encourages students from all parts the university to participate. Rehearsals are MWF from 3:30 to 4:20.
