University Choir is a large auditioned mixed chorus comprised of approximately 65 singers. It performs diverse choral repertoire representing a variety of periods, styles, and languages and offers a place for students to perform a high standard of choral music. This ensemble frequently collaborates with music faculty instrumentalists as well as student dancers and performs approximately 6-8 times per year both on campus and throughout Mississippi.
University Choir has performed works by J.S. Bach, Hailstork, Handel, Lauridsen, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Orff, Rutter, Saint-Saëns, and R. Thompson, and has sung in Chicago, Cincinnati, Jackson (Tenn.), Memphis, New Orleans, Omaha, Seattle, St. Louis, and Vancouver. Overseas destinations have included Brazil and Italy. Students from practically every academic discipline at MVSU participate in the choral program and nearly every student in University Choir receives a choir scholarship.
