MUS 277

Chamber Singers

This SATB chamber vocal ensemble is open to any student at DePauw regardless of major, but requires an audition to participate. In rigorous rehearsals, students learn repertoire of every level and of different eras, genres, and cultures, which facilitates the development of skills necessary in becoming an advanced choral singer and musician. A semester typically includes several joint performances with other choirs and ensembles of the Institute of Music. This group also serves as a musical ambassador of the university for special occasions on and off campus.
If a student wants to receive .5 credit (e. g. to fulfill a music degree requirement), they enroll in MUS277A. This choice includes the three 50 min. rehearsals per week plus an additional mandatory weekly two-hour rehearsal with Festival Choir (DePauw's non-auditioned SATB community choir). If a student only wants to receive .25 credit, they enroll in MUS277B, which only includes the three 50-min rehearsals per week.
