CHAMBER CHOIR

About the Chamber Choir:

Wake Forest University Chamber Choir (MUS 116) is the premier choral ensemble on the university campus. A highly select, auditioned mixed choir comprising students from various academic disciplines, this group performs the standard choral repertoire as well as newly composed and commissioned choral literature.

 

The Chamber Choir represents Wake Forest on the campus in its traditional annual Moraviann Lovefeast (the largest service of its kind in the country), regionally with the Winston-Salem Symphony and Symphony Chorus, and nationally through annual tours. 

 

Wake Forest Chamber Choir members take great pride in the discipline of the choral rehearsal and a strong work ethic that results in sensitive artistry. The singers also greatly value the friendships that are built through their focused work together.

 

An essential component of the ensemble’s development and camaraderie is each member’s participation in the annual choir tour that takes place the week prior to the start of classes in January. Tours alternate between domestic tours and tours abroad once every four years. Past international tours have taken Chamber Choir to Austria, England, Ireland, Italy, and Spain.

 

Chamber Choir meets Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00 to 5:00 PM in Scales Fine Arts Center, Room M208.
