Sing your leaders-with-heart out, Huron! All students looking forward to their return to campus: Come sing! There are choral scholarships, integrated learning opportunities, and world-class music-making waiting for you at the Chapel. Whether you are looking to make new connections, or just to remember what it feels like to sing with other human beings, come and check us out!
The Chapel Choir
Singers rehearse and sing every Sunday for the Eucharistic service. They also participate in choral events around the university. The chapel choir consists of choral scholars, lay clerks, and certain volunteers from the chapel’s congregation. See below the details of the choral scholarship program:
The Choral Scholarship
Honorariums/Stipends to help students toward their education finances.
Interdisciplinary studies course credit allowing students to explore how music intersects with their respective fields of study, from History, English, Classics, Theology, to Sociology, Philosophy, Psychology, etc.
Professional recording opportunities in Huron’s state-of-the-art auditorium and in the intimate chapel. Funds from the sale of recordings will go to the choir budget to increase scholarship offerings.
Concert opportunities to allow singers the chance to explore challenging music and then to showcase their work to the global community.
Residencies with professional ensembles to allow singers the chance to observe how professional musicians work. The choir will learn from guest artists and perform in concerts with them.
Awarded on your transcript for future employers and post-graduate application committees to see.
Outreach to homeless shelters where the choir regularly shares the beauty of music with those who otherwise do not get the opportunity.
Free singing and music lessons to help musicians grow their skillset.
All of this, in addition to whatever you study at Huron!
