Symphonic Choir

Symphonic Choir

The Southeastern Symphonic Choir is the largest vocal group on campus. Comprised of all the vocal music majors, as well as non-majors, staff, and members of the community, this ensemble is designed to present major, concerted works each semester. These performances have included masterworks of Handel, Orff, Respighi, Mozart, and J.S. Bach. The Symphonic Choir also collaborates regularly with the Sherman Symphony Orchestra.

The Symphonic Choir is the lead ensemble of the oldest continuing tradition on campus, Southeastern’s Candelighting. The 96th edition in 2017 will feature the Vivaldi Gloria and J.S. Bach Cantata BWV 62 Nun comma, der Heiden Heiland. 

Plans are underway for a Spring 2018 program to be held at First Baptist Church in Durant. On the theme of “war and …” the program will center on a cycle of Walt Whitman Civil War poems, set by Jeffrey Van for chorus and guitar.

New singers are always welcomed. 
The Symphonic Chorus meets on Mondays at 6:00pm to accommodate those who work during the day. Any interested musician should contact Dr. Joshua Nannestad.
