University of San Francisco Classical Choral Ensembles
The USF University Classical Choral Ensembles (UCCE) was established in the fall of 2001 under my direction. In recent years, the choir has performed Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices, Victoria’s Missa O magnum mysterium, Harrison’s La Koro Sutro, Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, Ceremony of Carols, and Rejoice in the Lamb, Mozart’s Missa Brevis in D, Saint-Saëns’ Christmas Oratorio, among other works.
The UCCE is committed to supporting social justice efforts in the music we perform and in our collaborations and projects, and each semester we focus on a different area of social justice work.
The choirs rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
The University Choir and the Treble Choir are open to all students that are able to commit to the rehearsal schedule and contain basic musicianship. Singers are not required to read music upon entering the choirs, but will be encouraged to learn and supported by other members of the choir to do so. In working on moderate to advanced music, students advance rapidly in both their vocal technique and their music literacy.
Singers are admitted to Chamber Singers based on an audition at the beginning of each term.
