Choral Music



There are two performing choral groups at HPU: the International Chorale and the International Vocal Ensemble.

  • International Chorale
The International Chorale is comprised of talented choral enthusiasts from the HPU community of students (undergraduate and graduate), faculty, and staff, as well as singers from the community, who perform choral repertoire taken from a variety of styles, cultures and languages. Individuals must audition in a “no stress” situation to qualify for the International Chorale. Rehearsals take place once a week. Academic credit for participation is available.
  • International Vocal Ensemble (IVE) - “Sing For Your Scholarship
This special group of voices is composed of 25-30 select singers who are recruited and auditioned for their vocal talents and experience. It is open to qualified students enrolled in one of HPU’s undergraduate or graduate degree programs. This ensemble makes up the vocal core of the International Chorale. The IVE is one of the few choral groups in the world made up of non-music majors who receive scholarship for their participation. Partial tuition waivers are available for qualified students.  2015-2016 International Vocal Ensemble Audition Packet (PDF file).
