Ensembles

Choirs

UCF music ensemble auditions are open to all UCF students, regardless of major.

The choral ensembles offer an opportunity to study and perform a variety of choral music of many styles, contexts, and cultures, including classical masterworks with instruments and art and folk music of many traditions. Choral ensemble experiences encourage and reinforce healthy singing technique, provide an awareness of cultural and historical style, tradition and context, refine critical listening and reading skills, encourage analytical thinking through analysis-in-practice, and provide a community of musicians an opportunity to explore together the power of shared music-making.

The Chamber Singers are a select mixed voice ensemble of advanced singers, specializing in music for smaller ensembles in many styles. This is the premier choral ensemble for the university, performing music of the highest caliber and performs locally, regionally, and nationally for many types of events including conferences, festivals and special events. The Chamber Singers present several concerts each semester.
