Do you love to sing? The Stanford Community Chorus is an exciting ensemble that explores many different types of music and singing, including folk, spirituals, popular songs, and traditional choral pieces. The chorus is open to the entire Bay Area community, including Stanford students, faculty, staff, and all our neighbors. The group is an opportunity to participate in communal singing in a fun and supportive environment. The rehearsal process consists of warm-ups, vocal exercises, learning by ear, experimenting with various vocal techniques, and singing in parts. With a focus on group singing, participants expand their musical repertoire and become more confident singers and musicians. The course culminates in an informal performance for friends and family.

No audition is required to join. Although previous choral experience is helpful, experienced music readers and nonreaders alike are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Note: This course's enrollment limit has changed from what appears in the print catalogue. The limit has been raised to 55 students.

Tuition discounts are not available. Grade restriction: NGR only; no credit/letter grade.
