Concert Choir (MUS 115) Concert Choir is a mixed choir that specializes in accompanied choral repertoire and cappella works appropriate for large chorus. The Concert Choir regularly collaborates with the Wake Forest Choral Society, the University’s Symphony Orchestra, instrumental faculty chamber ensembles, and musicians from the Winston-Salem Symphony. 

Concert Choir performs fall and spring concerts, the annual Holiday Concert and Lovefeast, and the end-of-year Masterworks concert with the combined Wake Forest University choirs.

Meeting only two times per week, Tuesday and Thursday from 5:15 – 6:30 PM, Concert Choir is the perfect fit for students who feel they are unable to commit to the rigorous Chamber Choir rehearsal and performing schedule. 

Great effort is taken to ensure that members of Concert Choir develop the kind of esprit de corps and camaraderie that reinforces sensitive choral artistry. Concert Choir peers will become like family to you; it’s a wonderful place to make friends, meet new people, engage in the spirit of Wake’s Pro Humanitate motto through community outreach, and learn more about yourself and about music at the same time! To learn more, visit our website wakechoirs.com.

Chamber Choir (MUS 116) Wake Forest University Chamber Choir is the premier choral ensemble on the university campus. A highly select, auditioned mixed choir comprising students from various academic disciplines, this group performs the standard choral repertoire as well as newly composed and commissioned choral literature, including jazz, pop, multicultural, and avant garde.

The Chamber Choir represents Wake Forest on the campus in its traditional annual Moraviann Lovefeast (the largest service of its kind in the country), regionally with the Winston-Salem Symphony and Symphony Chorus, and nationally through annual tours. 

Wake Forest Chamber Choir members take great pride in the discipline of the choral rehearsal and a strong work ethic that results in sensitive artistry. The singers also greatly value the friendships that are built through their focused work together. 

An essential component of the ensemble’s development and camaraderie is each member’s participation in the annual choir tour that takes place the week prior to the start of classes in January. Tours alternate between domestic tours and tours abroad once every four years. Past international tours have taken Chamber Choir to Austria, England, Ireland, Italy, and Spain.

Chamber Choir meets Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4:00 to 5:00 PM in Scales Fine Arts Center, Room M208. To learn more, visit our website wakechoirs.com.
