Symphonic Choir

symphonic chorus

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 95th edition in 2016 featured brass and organ accompanying the choir in music of David Willcocks, Daniel Pinkham, Kenneth Jennings, and more.
Spring 2017 will feature “Heroes of the Old Testament” on April 10, featuring music of Schubert and Mendelssohn;  on April 29th the Symphonic Chorus will join the Sherman Symphony for Beethoven’s Symphony #9.
