Choral Arts

Choral activities at Davidson College provide students a well-rounded education in the great historic works from the choral repertoire of the past, and introduces them to well-crafted contemporary works that are shaping the ever-evolving choral landscape of the future. Within those parameters, throughout four years of participation in the choral program, choirs at Davidson perform challenging repertoire that is artistically meritorious, scholarly, and historically relevant, while at the same time indulging in new and exciting repertoire that bridges the gap between the classical and popular genres through the performance and study of various multicultural and folk-type compositions.

Through participation in ChoraleDavidson Singers, and the Choral Arts Society, Davidson students find an exceptional outlet for artistic refinement and expression, learning the value of the study of music as a bridge to the past and a pathway to the future.
