Vocal, Choral, and Opera

From the premier Chamber Choir, which specializes in a cappella repertoire from the 16th through the 21st centuries, to the Repertoire Singers laboratory chorus, the University’s choral program provides intensive training and a dynamic environment for choral musicians of all ability levels.

Students participating in the vocal performance and choral studies programs have the opportunity to perform in fully staged opera productions and international choral festivals, as well as in collaborations with the Eugene Symphony, Oregon Bach Festival, and Eugene Opera.

The UO Chamber Choir recently won the 2019 Grand Prix of Nations in Gothenburg, Sweden, and placed second in the prestigious Marktoberdorf International Chamber Choir Competition in Germany in 2015. In prior years the group has won the Fleischmann International Trophy Competition at the Cork International Choral Festival in Ireland, and took top honors in two categories at the 2011 Tallinn International Choral Festival in Estonia
