The choral program consists of four ensembles. All are open to both music majors and non-music majors based on auditions. The University Choir, Women’s Choir, Chamber Choir, and Choir Laboratory each perform on two concerts per semester, and carry one academic credit each.
Women’s Choir and University Choir
Students in these organizations perform a wide range of styles, achieving musical results quickly by learning advanced musical literature. Both groups’ social functions provide an excellent opportunity for students to become acquainted with others with similar interests.
This group of 40-50 singers is the most advanced UW Oshkosh choir. Students are required to demonstrate music reading skills as well as vocal technique and training. The Chamber Choir has been invited to perform for a number of state and regional conventions of music educators and choral conductors, and the group tours Wisconsin high schools each year.
Our Choir Laboratory is an auditioned chamber vocal ensemble that is intended to give students a practical understanding of and performance experience in one or more specific choral performance genres as determined by the instructor (e.g. vocal jazz, renaissance, medieval, music theater, popular and new music).
