The Chorale is a mixed chorus dedicated to the performance of a wide variety of European and American choral music - sacred, secular, and popular. The college chorale's musical sensitivity, energy, and unique sound is a testament to the dedication and talent of its singers. Membership in the chorale is open to all students at Eureka College, regardless of class year or major; the most important prerequisite is that singers are willing to learn and dedicate themselves to choral performance excellence. Rehearsals are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00-4:00 P.M..
The Eureka College Chorale has conducted concert tours in Canada, New England, England, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The next European Concert Tour will take place in May of 2014.
New singer auditions are held at the beginning of each semester and consist of a ten minute session with Dr. Joseph D. Henry, the Director of Choral Activities. Singers will not be required to audition a prepared piece of music.
