The DePaul Choirs are dedicated to developing the choral artistry of a wide array of student singers (music majors and non-music majors) with diverse and engaging repertoire. This fall the choirs will sing Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs
with international opera star Christopher Magiera and will premiere concertato motets with the DePaul Baroque Ensemble and Jason Moy. In the winter the choirs will collaborate with the DePaul Concert Orchestra and Michael Lewanski to perform Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms
. Lastly, Maestro Cliff Colnot has invited the choirs to perform the Brahms Schicksalslied
with the DePaul Symphony Orchestra at the School of Music's annual spring concert and gala at downtown Chicago's Symphony Center, home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
The choirs rehearse Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:20 - 2:50 pm in the School of Music's Concert Hall.
