Choirs

Vocal ensembles at Culver-Stockton provide many opportunities for musical performance and enrichment. Generous music scholarships are available to both music majors and non-majors.

Collegiate Choir- The Collegiate Choir is Culver-Stockton College’s large non-auditioned chorus, and its membership includes students, faculty, and community members. This ensemble performs at least one major work with an orchestra every year, and is the principal chorus for the annual Festival of Lessons and Carols in December and the Pops Concert in the spring.

Concert Choir- The Concert Choir is the premier choral ensemble at Culver-Stockton College, and the singers in the group represent a variety of majors and previous experiences. The tie that binds this group together is their individual commitment to the pursuit of excellence in the performance of choral music. The Concert Choir has performed by invitation at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., with the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, and for the Missouri Music Educators Association Conference. It has undertaken a national or international tour annually for nearly 70 years.

Chamber Choir- The Chamber Choir is an ensemble of 16-20 singers who are selected by a rigorous audition process from the membership of the Concert Choir. Its focus is on advanced choral music, new music, and vocal jazz.

Opera Workshop- The Opera Workshop provides serious vocal students with the opportunity to perform chamber operas, learn stage production techniques, and develop acting skills.

The Concert Choir has one of the longest traditions of touring in the state of Missouri. For more than 60 years the choir has undertaken a tour each year that sometimes takes it through the Midwest, across the nation, or overseas. The choir has also been invited to sing at the Missouri Music Educators state convention multiple times, which tells you that excellence as well as fun is part of what this group is all about.

We encourage you to listen to our recordings and see what has brought top singers from across the region to our doorstep. The current choral groups are home to All-State singers, All-District singers, All-Conference singers and a host of other talented musicians who want to share their talents, improve their skills, and enjoy making music a part of their everyday life. You can find a musical home here as well.

Join us and be a part of something exciting, challenging, and rewarding every day in the choirs at Culver-Stockton College!
