University of San Francisco Classical Choral Ensembles

The USF University Classical Choral Ensembles was established in the fall of 2001 under my direction. Since then, the ensembles have performed a number of high quality works, both smaller partsongs and motets and major works. 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 choirs rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 and 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. The audition includes site singing and singers are expected to possess excellent musicianship.
