College Choir is a large choir composed of students of all skill levels. The choir sings music across all styles and genres and performs in four concerts a year (two per semester). Participation includes study of major choral literature of all the historical periods. The students learn and demonstrate the basics of sight singing and music theory as they expand their abilities and develop a musical foundation.
