International Vocal Ensemble (IVE)

Made up of 16-24 talented and hard-working singers who are recruited, auditioned, and awarded scholarship money for their participation, IVE’s mission is to perform a diverse array of music from around the world. The group has toured internationally, most recently traveling to Japan with the HPU Orchestra. IVE is one of the few choral groups in the world made up of non-music majors who receive scholarship for their participation. This ensemble makes up the vocal core of the International Chorale.  Partial tuition waivers are available for qualified students.

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.
