    About the Chapel Choir

    We have taken powerful messages of joy, hope, and positive social change to thousands of different people and places. And from the stories we continue to hear from people touched by the choir¹s performances, we know our impact infinitely resounds. 

    This select mixed ensemble is the Conservatory's most advanced choir and is recognized as one of the outstanding college choral groups in the nation. The choir performs a variety of sacred and secular choral literature, including motets, choral/orchestral works, spirituals, gospel music, carols, traditional music, and selections for women’s chorus and men’s chorus as well as music from Eastern Europe, Africa, Japan and from Latin and South America.

    A Joyful Journey: South Africa

    In May 2011, the Chapel Choir had an opportunity like no other: to travel to South Africa to perform in breathtakingly beautiful surroundings and diverse concert settings‹from traditional venues like churches, universities, and concert halls, to some not-so-traditional locations like an AIDS hospice site, a homeless shelter, a mountain cable car, and an airplane.
