On campus the Concert Choir presents extraordinarily diverse repertoire in several performances each semester. Enrollment in the choir is open to all UCM students, regardless of major.

Interested students should plan for a full year of participation, although some spots become open at semester.

The Collegiate Choir
The Collegiate Choir is a large mixed chorus, which performs a varied selection of sacred and secular choral literature from all historical periods. Emphasis is placed on development of choral and vocal skill as well as the pure enjoyment of isnging. During the spring semester, Collegiate Choir and the UCM Concert Choir combine forces with the UCM Symphony to perform a major choral orcehstral work.

Membership is by audition, but is open to all who wish to sing.
