Concert Choir

Members of the Concert Choir are a mix of LMU students, chorus alumni, university staff members and members of the community. The Concert Choir sings a range of repertoire from Renaissance music to music of living composers, and performs both in the Gala Christmas Concert and the Annual Spring Chorale, in addition to domestic and international tour opportunities. With no required prior choral experience, joining the Concert Choir is a wonderful way to continue a passion for singing and music, whether or not you are a Music major, and even whether or not you are part of the immediate LMU community!  

How to Join 

In order to join the Concert Choir, you must first audition for the choir prior to registering for the course (MUSC 495). MUSC 495 has no pre-requisites and can be registered via PROWL for current students or via LMU Extension (CNTX196.01) for non-LMU students. In person auditions for 2018-2019 will take place on August 25-29, 2018. No prior choral experience is required! Contact Mary Breden, Director of Choral Activities, for more information on this process.

LMU Consort Singers

LMU Consort Singers

The Consort Singers, the select group of both male and female singers, perform a variety of choral repertoire in formal concerts as well as campus and community events, including the Gala Christmas Concert and the Annual Spring Chorale. Known for their musicality, the Consorts are equally at home with Victoria, Mozart, Whitacre, or Lerner & Loewe. Their sound has been described as "rich, mature, expressive" and "opulent when needed.” Being selected for the Consort Singers is one of the best ways for our most talented singers to showcase their skill. Auditions are required, as is prior choral experience.

How to Join

Following the basic audition in which all chorus candidates participate, further consideration is given to those who show potential for membership in the Consort Singers. If selected by the director, you may then enroll in MUSC 491. In person auditions for 2018-2019 will take place on August 25-29, 2018. Contact Mary Breden, Director of Choral Activities, for more information on this process.
