The choral program consists of three ensembles. All are open to both music majors and non-music majors by either a placement hearing or audition. The Women’s Choir, Titan Men’s Choir, and Chamber Choir each perform on two concerts per semester, and carry one academic credit each. Upper level sections of each ensemble are available to music majors of junior or senior status.

Choral Placement Hearings – Fall 2020
All new and returning students interested in singing in a UWO Choir must schedule a short (6-8 minute) placement hearing to determine voice range and section placement. The hearing will consist of vocal exercises to determine range, a short part-holding exercise, and a short sight-reading exercise. You do not need to prepare a song or any audition materials.
Choral placement hearings will be held in the Arts & Communication Building Room N28 (Choral Rehearsal Room) on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (September 6th-8th). You can sign up using the google doc link here:
