The College Choir is a large mixed ensemble open to all students. This ensemble develops a love of choral music and singing among the members and shares that passion with audiences.
Singers in this ensemble receive instruction in healthy voice production, projection, and support; sight-reading, ear-training, and other musicianship skills; language and diction; repertoire and cultural history; and obtain valuable performance experience.
The College Choir sings a broad range of choral music that spans 600 years. In addition to performing cornerstones of the Western choral canon and a choral-orchestral masterpiece each year, the College Choir makes a point of also exploring the music of composers from many cultures, as well as frequently singing works by New England composers and arrangements of American music in many genres.
The College Choir performs at high-profile events on campus like Advent Festival of Lessons and Carols during the Christmas season at St. Joseph Memorial Chapel and at the Holy Cross Family Weekend Concert, as well as off campus at venues such as Worcester’s historic Mechanics Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City. Past tours have included overseas trips to Europe and South America.
