Founded in 1888, the Penn State choral program is one of the most dynamic and active areas of study in the School of Music. Committed to providing outstanding musical and educational opportunities for all singers, the choral program includes six large choral ensembles conducted by four faculty members. Four chamber choirs are also included in our curriculum, as well as a non-auditioned choral offering, Campus Choir, designed for students who wish to explore their singing voices and develop their musicianship.
Penn State choirs are open by audition to all students, regardless of major, and participants receive one academic credit per semester. These credits fulfill General Arts credits in many colleges and majors. Graduate credit (Music 810) for choral singers is also available. Auditions occur during the first week of each semester.
