Repertoire & Performances

Our repertoire consists of great works of the choral canon from medieval and Renaissance works, such as Wilbye and Victoria, to works by Baroque masters such as Monteverdi, Schutz, Bach and Handel; classical works of Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart and contemporary works by Benjamin Britten, Leonard Bernstein, Carl Orff, John Corigliano, Ola Gjeilo and Eric Whitacre.

Opportunities exist for choral members to participate in smaller chamber groups, and often soloists are drawn from the chorus.
