Eastman Chorale is a select ensemble of singers from the Eastman School of Music performing the finest choral repertoire from the past five centuries. The Chorale consists primarily of graduate and undergraduate students in vocal performance, conducting and music education. The Eastman Chorale has performed by invitation at conferences of the National Collegiate Choral Association, the The choir tours annually, and has performed at both ACDA and MENC conferences.
The Eastman Repertory Singers is a mixed 60-voice chorus of Eastman students presenting frequent performances under the direction of graduate students in conducting, in styles ranging from Renaissance madrigals and motets to premieres of contemporary choral works. Recent concerts have included the Haydn Lord Nelson Mass, the Duruflé Requiem, and works of Rachmaninoff, Mozart and Bach. This chorus includes students in vocal performance, conducting, piano, organ, composition, and music education.
The Eastman Women’s Chorus is a select ensemble made up of Eastman music majors and women in other majors throughout the University. The ensemble is dedicated to the performance of beautiful and compelling repertoire created with real women’s voices in mind, including music from the Venetian Ospedali, the German Frauenchor, and contemporary female composers.
This event is free and open to the public.
