University Chorale

Minji Kim, Conductor

Jonathan King, Conductor

The UNIVERSITY CHORALE is an auditioned mixed ensemble of 60 voices that performs a wide variety of a cappella and accompanied repertoire. Primarily directed by graduate conductors from the School of Music, the University Chorale comprises music majors and undergraduate and graduate students from many other disciplines across the College Park campus. In addition to their own concertizing on campus, the University Chorale combines frequently with the UMD Chamber Singers to form the UMD Concert Choir. This 100 voice symphonic choir appears regularly with the National Symphony Orchestra and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in repertoire such as Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the Brahms Requiem, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, the Stravinsky Symphony of Psalms, and the War Requiem of Benjamin Britten. They have also made regular appearances with the NSO Pops and the BSO Pops in shows such as “The Leading Men of Broadway,” “Do you hear the People Sing?” and “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”
