The Choir is chosen from the 2000 student campus and represents its finest singers. They have performed masterworks of great composers such as Benjamin Britten, J.S. Bach, Randall Thompson and Vincent Persichetti among many others; however they also find time and enjoy performing popular songs, jazz standards and world music.
Conducted by Dir. Michael Najar, the choir program schedules an international tour every other year, as a core strategy of its educational purposes. In his words: “We hope that, by learning from other musical cultures and by sharing ours, we will become better citizens of the world”.
