Choral and Small Vocal Ensembles
- Carleton Choir (MUSC 185.01: Bella Cantemus and MUSC 185.02: Men's Chorus), the cornerstone of the choral program, is a select mixed chorus of Carleton students. Each term, the ensemble presents a concert of short and extended works from the large bodies of classical, ethnic and cultural repertories, including works for mixed, women's voices (Bella Cantemus) and men's voices (Men's Chorus). Concerts are sometimes repeated off campus. Students must have good vocal skills, basic sight reading ability, and a high degree of interest in performing quality choral music. Placement is by audition. 1; S/CR/NC; AL / ARP or LA
- Carleton Singers (MUSC 186) is a small (two-to-three on a part), highly select vocal ensemble dedicated to performing a cappella choral music of all periods and styles. The Singers collaborate and perform with the Carleton Choir. Membership is offered to students who demonstrate exceptional vocal technique and musical skills. The need to balance all parts (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) dictates the size of the ensemble. With few exceptions, membership is for the full year. Admission is by competitive audition. 1; S/CR/NC; AL / ARP or LA
Small Vocal Ensembles
- Jubilee Singers (MUSC 195.02) The ensemble explores a cappella spirituals and gospel music of the African-American singing tradition. The ensemble performs at the MLK and Black History Month worship services and We Speak. There are no auditions. 1; S/CR/NC; AL / ARP or LA (Winter 2012)
Non-departmental, student-run vocal groups are listed on the Carleton Student Association's Student Organizations web page.
