University Chorale (formerly University Singers)

ABOUT THE CHOIR

University Singers is a non-auditioned mixed-voice ensemble open to any undergraduate or graduate student, faculty, or staff member in the University who enjoys singing. The ensemble performs a wide variety of accompanied and a cappella repertoire. Under the direction of Dr. Lisa Hanson, University Singers offers the opportunity to bring members of our University Circle community together to make music. University Circle community members as well as all CWRU students, faculty and staff are welcome!

The ability to read music is not required for participation and no audition is necessary. Members should be able to match pitch and can expect to vocalize for the director to determine their appropriate voice parts. Goals of the University Singers include developing basic musicianship skills, learning healthy vocal techniques, and sharing music with fellow singers and the community.

Student members may choose to participate in University Singers for 0-1 credit (MUEN 387). For additional information contact Dr. Lisa Hanson (lisa.hanson@case.edu), You may also contact Dr. Matthew Garrett, Director of Choirs (chorus@case.edu or 216-368-2496). Join us at our new rehearsal time, 5:30-6:45 pm, for our first rehearsal of the semester on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, or any rehearsal through our membership drive (ends Thursday, September 8, 2016)!
