If you are looking for choral opportunities to be part of your college experience, a visit to All Saints' Chapel with the University Choir should be on your bucket list. You have to see (and hear) it to believe it. This exclusive campus visit experience is available several times during the spring.
At the laying of the cornerstone for the University of the South on Oct. 10, 1860, a choir is first mentioned singing Psalm 100. Since that time, the University Choir has continued to play an important role in the musical life of the University and All Saints' Chapel through services, recitals, and related ventures.
The University Choir, directed by Geoffrey Harris Ward, consists of roughly 50 dedicated undergraduates who sing at weekly services in All Saints' Chapel, monthly Evensongs, and a variety of recitals throughout the program year. Choir membership is open to any student—no audition or previous experience is required, and the choir consists of a variety of students with different backgrounds and interests outside of their time in rehearsal.
As an active touring ensemble, the choir has performed extensively throughout the southeastern United States as well as Colorado, New York, and Canada. Since 1979, the choir has made more than 10 tours of England, singing the service of Choral Evensong in more than 20 cathedrals and abbey churches.
