Concert Choir (MUSC 022)

The Concert Choir is a large choral ensemble designed to provide a high quality choral experience to all students at Lynchburg College.

Membership is open to all students.

The choir prepares and performs various choral literatures from medieval to 20th century. There are three concerts on campus each year: one in the fall, the Carols by Candlelight service, and one in the spring. The group also performs on special occasions such as convocation, Parents and Family Weekend, and commencement.

Members of the choir earn one academic credit hour per semester.

The Lynchburg Singers (MUSC 024)

The Lynchburg Singers is a highly selective vocal chamber ensemble of 16-20 singers. It includes both music and non-music majors at Lynchburg College plus several singers from the community.

Membership is by audition only for those who meet the demands of voice, sight reading, overall musicianship, and commitment. Members are expected to have some formal voice training.

The choir performs vocal chamber music of every musical period, but devotes its energies to performance of 20th-century choral works with a vision to promote understanding among peoples of different cultures. Membership in Lynchburg Singers also requires membership in the Concert Choir. The choir tours annually throughout the region.

Members of the choir earn one academic credit hour per semester.

Choral Union (MUSC 025)

This is a college and community choral ensemble providing a high quality choral experience of choral/orchestral literatures to the general student body, faculty/staff, and interested community singers.

The Choral Union performs masterworks of the choral music repertoire. Recent musical selections include Faure's Requiem, Rutter's Mass of the Children, Brahms' Requiem, and Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem.

Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Helen Wood Recital Hall. Members of the choir earn one academic credit hour per semester.
