The University Singers is a mixed ensemble of 40-50 voices devoted to performing outstanding choral repertoire of all styles and periods. Open to qualified singers by audition, approximately eighty per cent of the members are music majors.
In addition to presenting public performances, the group provides professional training for students planning careers as vocal performers and choral music educators. The choir is often invited to perform at conferences of the Ohio Music Education Association and Music Educators National Conference. In addition to performing on National Public Radio, the University Singers have toured and performed in Germany, Austria, Baltimore, Washington, D. C., Harrisburg, PA, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and throughout Ohio.
The ensemble has presented the Ohio premieres of Eric Whitacre's Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, Rob Newell's Of Visions and Dreams Fulfilled, Karen A. Tarlow's Five Shaker Lyrics, George Andoniadis's Chief Seattle, and John Rutter's Magnificat (under the composer's direction). The University Singers often collaborate with the Choral Union and Symphony Orchestra to perform the great choral-orchestral masterworks.
