Dear Deacon...

Whether you are a beginner who wants to learn to sing, or an advanced musician who wants to contribute to a challenging and fulfilling musical environment, the Wake Forest Music Department has a choir for you!

Auditions are intentionally low-key and relaxed. In the audition you'll find friendly, welcoming faces who are thrilled that you want to sing on the collegiate level. Once you've gotten through the audition process, you'll get to meet and work with some of the best students on the Wake Forest campus.

Keep in mind that most of our singers are non-music majors, so while musical experience is highly desired, we also understand that the same intelligence that got you into one of the best schools in the country will also enable you to flourish in our ensembles.


See our Audition FAQs to the right to answer additional questions you might have about the audition process. Do not hesitate to contact (Dr. Gilliam) at any time should you have a question about the Wake Forest Choirs. 

We look forward to meeting you!

Unequivocally, yes! You don't have the time to NOT sing in choir. But seriously, because so many things will be vying for your time, it's vital, for your own health and well-being, that you choose to take the time to do something for yourself each week. Singing with others is one of the most effective ways of dealing with stress, anxiety, and loneliness -- the benefits of singing in a choir are well documented. Plan to devote a few hours out of every week to do something musical and engaging for yourself; committed participation in a choir is the best way to do that. Graduates who return years later tell us again and again that singing in choir during their collegiate career was among the most important and impactful choices they made to enhance their experience.

"I'm a busy college student. Will I really have time to commit to singing in a choir?"
