UMD Treble Choir

Kenneth Elpus, conductor

Founded in 2001, the University of Maryland Treble Choir, an active and integral part of the university’s choral program, is comprised entirely of soprano, mezzo-soprano and alto singers. One of the most popular ensembles on campus, its repertoire spans all styles from classical to contemporary and its membership includes students from diverse fields of study.

Headlining such campus traditions as the Annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols and the Celebration of Women’s Voices, the UMD Women's Chorus performs frequently throughout the semester, on tour and on campus, often collaborating with the UMD Men’s Chorus. A pioneer in contemporary music, the ensemble pushes the boundaries of the classical choral cannon with acclaimed performances of music by Whitacre, Britten, Orbán, Hatfield, Daley, Fjellheim, Daley, and others.

Past performance credits include performing in Washington’s St. Matthew’s Cathedral, and events sponsored by the Federal Triangle Partnership in honor of Women’s History Month. In Spring 2016, the UMD Treble Choir (then known as the UMD Women’s Chorus traveled to Boston to perform for the Eastern Division Conference of the American Choral Directors Association.
