Women’s Choir is a 50-voice treble choir that sings a variety of literature reflecting the best in music written or arranged for women’s voices. The repertoire ranges from Medieval through contemporary music, both sacred and secular. Women's Choir performs in concerts and at high ceremonies each quarter — as well as annually at the highly acclaimed Sacred Sounds of Christmas, an Advent and Christmas celebration in downtown Seattle that showcases many of Seattle Pacific's ensembles.
As a member of the Women’s Choir, you will perform regularly in concerts, including at the annual Sacred Sounds of Christmas concert in downtown Seattle and in Festival of Lessons and Carols at First Free Methodist Church. Occasionally, Women’s Choir performs at selected churches and organizations in the community as outreach for the University, as well as chapels and other campus events.
Membership in Women’s Choir is by audition and is open to Music majors, Music minors, and nonmajors. Auditions are held at the beginning of Autumn Quarter (see notices posted in the lobby of Crawford Music Building prior to the beginning of the quarter). Interested members should email the director about audition requirements.
Why I Teach at SPU
Ronald Haight, Director of Music Technology
"I enjoy teaching at SPU because of the students, who let me express my passion and are willing to share their passions with me. It creates an atmosphere where creating, recreating, and sharing music come alive and reflect God the great creator."
