    The AU Chorus is open to all students regardless of musical background. If you can sing, we want you and we will teach you! In the spring semester, the choir will focus on music that celebrates diversity, acceptance and hope. We will be working on "Glory" from the movie "Selma" and alumni Chaz Bruce will come from Rochester to help us sing Gospel and R & B music. We will perform 2-3 selections from a new work "Considering Matthew Shepard" a piece about the tragic death of a young gay man but also focusses on hope for our future. We'll celebrate our Latino community in a Caribbean based "Kyrie" with steel drums and multiple percussion.

    Concerned about issues of diversity, inclusion and community? Let's sing about it and through our songs truly become community.

    University Chorus is a 2 credit course MUSC 271 and satisfies part of the Arts credit in General Education. The choir meets on Monday from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm and Wednesday 5:20 pm - 6:50 pm. The group is also open to faculty and community members.

    Singing in a choir has been shown to relieve stress and help people to find a community.

    Phil Niblock
    Music Composition Performance

    Phill Niblock (b. 1933, USA) is an artist whose fifty-year career spans minimalist and experimental music, film and photography. Since 1985, he has served as director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation for avant-garde music based in New York with a branch in Ghent, and curator of the foundation's record label XI. Known for his thick, loud drones of music, Niblock's signature sound is filled with microtones of instrumental timbres that generate many other tones in the performance space. In 2013, his diverse artistic career was the subject of a retrospective realised in partnership between Circuit (Contemporary Art Centre Lausanne) and Musée de l'Elysée. The following year Niblock was honored with the prestigious Foundation for Contemporary Arts John Cage Award.
