Chorale & Chamber Singers

Tim Harbold, conductor

Wheaton's choirs enjoy singing music that spans the centuries and the globe. Both the larger Chorale and the small, selective Chamber Singers aspire to choral excellence in music ranging from classical to world folk songs to spirituals and jazz. Wheaton's Haas Visiting Artist program and Mary Bloor Loser Music Series bring world-renowned performers to campus for concerts and master classes with our singers.
