Chamber Singers and University Chorus
Any Brandeis University student, staff, or faculty can join a choir for credit or as an extracurricular activity. Regardless of your background or level of experience, we have a choir for you!
Choral auditions will take place on Tuesday, August 24 and Wednesday, August 25 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the Slosberg Recital Hall. To join either choir, please sign up for a fall 2021 vocal hearing here! Vocal hearings are informal, and consist of (1) testing range of voice, (2) testing your ear for pitch replication, and (3) reading a short work together. No prepared work is required. Please email Robert Duff with any questions.
