St. Thomas Choirs
The joy of singing is infectious. Perhaps that’s why more than 250 singers participate in the University of St. Thomas choral program. You can join one of six choirs and receive academic credit. In recent years, St. Thomas choirs have performed at national, regional and state American Choral Directors Association conventions. As a choir member, you will develop a deep understanding of music and an appreciation of diverse cultures guided by outstanding conductors who hold high artistic standards.
Auditions are held during the first week of fall semester in the Brady Educational Center. All interested choral students should complete the online form to reserve an audition. Forms will be accepted June 1-Sep. 1. When you audition in the fall, you’ll be able to rank order the choirs according to your preference. You’ll be placed in a choir based on your ability and experience as, well as our needs and openings.
