The Concert Choir is a highly selective ensemble comprised of our very best choral singers. The Concert Choir regularly performs some of the most challenging choral repertoire, from Bach to Pendereski, Lauridsen to Whitacre.
Where will I perform?
In addition to several Kansas City area performances each semester, this choir makes an annual United States concert tour. Since 1985, the choir has traveled tri-annually to England and Scotland for a 14-day concert tour in magnificent cathedrals.
Recognition and Recordings
The Concert Choir was named runner-up for the American Prize in Choral Performance for 2015 in the college/university chorus division. The American Prize is a series of nonprofit, national competitions to recognize and reward the best performing arts in the country.
In 2015, the Concert Choir was featured on The Trumpet Sounds, released by Centaur Records, featuring two world premier recordings of compositions by Jewell professors, Dr. Ian Coleman and Dr. Anthony Maglione. A second album is being release in spring 2018.
