Indiana University Chorale (Choir)

Founded: Bloomington, Indiana, USA

The Indiana University Chorale is a multifaceted choir that provides singers the opportunity to learn and perform music of many genres. The range of repertoire has included early music, classical and romantic works, and large-scale choral compositions. The University Chorale has also served as the opera chorus for IU Opera Theatre productions in the past. Two examples include the 2009 production of W.A. Mozart's The Magic Flute conducted by Mark Gibson and the 2007 production of Carlisle Floyd's Susannah.

The University Chorale is conducted by advanced doctoral choral conducting majors and is supervised by Walter Huff, Faculty Director of Opera Choruses for the IU Opera Theater. At lease once a year, the University Chorale joins other IU choral ensembles to form the Oratorio Chorus in order to perform a major work with one of the fine Jacobs School’s orchestras in the Musical Arts Center. As part of the Oratorio Chorus, the University Chorale has performed pieces such as Felix Mendelssohn's Elijah, Johannes Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem, Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, and John Adams' El Niño. The University Chorale has also hosted special guest conductors, having performed Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle with Gary Thor Wedow, conductor of The Seatle Opera, Boston Lyric, Wolftrap, The Juilliard School, and New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Students in the University Chorale receive a wealth of experience, helping them refine their musicianship skills of sight-singing, phrasing, language and diction.
