WAKE FOREST CONCERT CHOIR

The Wake Forest Concert Choir (MUS 115) presents choral programs on campus each semester, sings in the Winston-Salem area, and travels internationally every two years. The 50-voice large mixed ensemble has given concerts in Austria, Italy, Ireland, and Spain, and will travel to England in March 2020.  The ensemble sings in the traditional Moravian Lovefeast held in Wait Chapel each December, the largest service of its kind in the country.  The singers represent the finest vocal and musical talent on campus and major in music as well as other academic subjects.

The Concert Choir sings the significant choral literature from plainchant to recently composed works and joins with the other Music Department choral ensembles in presenting major choral works with soloists and orchestra.  Their CD recording of Minnesota composer Jeffrey Van’s A Procession Winding Around Me is available at www.centaurrecords.com.

WAKE FOREST CHAMBER CHOIR 

The Wake Forest Chamber Choir (MUS 116) is a 16-voice small mixed ensemble which performs repertoire chosen from classical choral genres, vocal jazz, and contemporary a cappella to be entertaining to campus and community audiences. The group also joins with Collegium Musicum to present an early music concert, which concentrates on a national style from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods of music history.
