From part books to premieres, from popular song to opera, from oratorios to chamber works—Jacobs School students sing and conduct an incredibly wide variety of choral repertoire.
COVID–19 Please see our Ensembles page to learn how we are singing this semester.
Choral Ensembles In any given school year, the Jacobs School presents performances by an exceptionally wide array of vocal ensembles: 2 large symphonic choruses, 3 chamber choirs (one of which specializes in new music), 5 opera choruses, early music ensembles, a collegiate show choir, and an all-campus choir. Regardless of your interests, there is a chorus for you at IU!
