University Choirs

Chamber Choir 1

The choral program consists of four ensembles. All are open to both music majors and non-music majors based on auditions. The Le Choeur de Femmes (women's choir), Titan Men's Choir, Chamber Choir, and Choir Laboratory each perform on two concerts per semester, and carry one academic credit each. The four groups frequently combine as the UW Oshkosh Choral Union to perform with the UW Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra.

Le Choeur de Femmes is a select ensemble of treble voices which number from 30-45, while the Titan Men's Choir is a male-only group of the same count. Students in these organizations are challenged to achieve musical results much more quickly with advanced literature. The groups perform a wide range of musical styles and literature. Its social functions provide an excellent opportunity for students to become acquainted with others with similar interests.

The Chamber Choir is the most advanced of the choirs. Students are required to demonstrate music reading skills as well as vocal technique and training. This group of 40-50 singers has been invited to perform for a number of State and Regional conventions of music educators and choral conductors. The group tours Wisconsin High Schools each year.

Our Choir Laboratory is an auditioned chamber vocal ensemble that is intended to give students a practical understanding of and performance experience in one or more specific choral performance genres as determined by the instructor (e.g. vocal jazz, renaissance, medieval, music theater, popular and new music).
