Symphonic Chorus โ€“ non auditioned

Broadway Choir โ€“ non auditioned
A medium sized choir (approx. 30) that is specifically designed as a Broadening Unit for non-Music students. The Chorus performs an end of semester concert showcasing choral works or arrangements with piano chosen from the Musical Theatre and related repertoire. 
 
Con-Cantorum - by audition (sight-reading skills essential)
A number of small a cappella (unaccompanied) ensembles designed for Music Major Voice students and advanced non-Music students (whether as volunteers or as a Broadening Unit students). You will be allocated as a solo member of various small ensembles (3-8 members) where each singer performs their own part, as well as singing in larger ensemble works. Each semester the Consort typically performs 20+ works chosen from both the Western Art Music repertoire (ie classical music) as well as arrangements of more contemporary popular standards. Non-Music students may participate as a Broadening Unit or as volunteers.   
 
Concordia Vocalis (Vocal Harmony) โ€“ by audition
This ensemble is the Conservatorium's premier vocal ensemble.  The 12-member ensemble sing predominantly A Capella works from all eras to modern day arrangements, in one-to-a-part as well as chamber pieces written specifically for elite singers.
