Experience the exceptional artistry of the Wichita State University Concert Chorale, the premiere choral ensemble at WSU. This highly selective, auditioned choir is open to all WSU students who seek a rigorous and quality choral experience regardless of major. The Chorale cultivates an atmosphere of collegiality, fostering lasting memories and musical experiences through high artistic standards and the pursuit of excellence.

The Concert Chorale performs a wide variety of repertoire from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century, ensuring a diverse and captivating program. Annually, they join other WSU choirs for the beloved Candlelight Christmas Concert and collaborate with the WSU Symphony Orchestra for the spring ‘Oratorio.’

Known for their excellence, the Chorale tours annually and is frequently invited to perform at prestigious professional conferences such as the American Choral Directors Association and the National Association for Music Education. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the finest choral ensemble at WSU in a performance that promises to inspire and delight.

Joining the Concert Chorale is Wichita State’s Wu Choir and Shocker Choir. The Wu Choir, a treble-voiced (soprano/alot) ensemble, and the Shocker Choir, a bass-voiced (tenor/bass) chorus, are comprised of music and non-music majors, reflecting their members’ diverse and inclusive musical interests.

Open to singers campus-wide, these ensembles offer a quality choral experience through meaningful repertoire, collegiality, and excellent performance. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the rich and dynamic choral traditions of WSU.
