Vocal Performance and Choral Studies

From the premier Chamber Choir, which specializes in a cappella repertoire from the sixteenth through the twenty-first centuries, to the nonauditioned Concert Choir, the university’s choral program provides intensive training and a dynamic environment for choral musicians of all ability levels and any major.

The voice program offers students individual lessons with faculty artists in the study of solo vocal literature, as well as weekly studio performance classes with opportunities for evaluation, discussion, and experimentation.

Opera studies at the UO prepare the singing actor through training in acting, movement, stagecraft, and interpretation in productions and in scenes programs.

Students participating in the vocal performance and choral studies programs have the opportunity to perform in fully staged opera productions and international choral festivals, as well as in collaborations with the Eugene Symphony, Oregon Bach Festival, and Eugene Opera.
