Choirs at Ohio State

The choirs at Ohio State are comprised of students who sing for all the right reasons and who represent many of the academic disciplines on campus. 

Chorale is the SATB ensemble for Ohio State's most experienced singers. Selected by audition, the choir combines some of the most advanced singers at the university — both music majors and non-music majors — and cultivates an inclusive community focused on artistic singing. The Chorale performs a wide variety of musical styles, both solo performances and collaborative projects, with other areas of the School of Music.

University Chorus is an SATB ensemble for students and staff who love to sing and value the choral experience, but with a more limited time commitment.

The two glee clubs — Women's Glee Club and Men's Glee Club  — are both high quality choral experiences and student organizations, providing musical, social and service components. Browse the links to learn more about each ensemble and how to become involved.

Our choirs offer a welcoming and affirming experience for those who participate. We perform a wide and varied repertoire — ranging from the great composers of the Western choral tradition to new works by composers from around the globe. We are committed to the improvement and development of musical literacy, and to understanding the role the arts play in society. Students (undergraduate and graduate) who seek to balance academic achievement with artistic creation will find themselves at home in the Ohio State choral program.


ALL Ohio State students — music majors and non-majors alike — are encouraged to join our choirs.

Audition dates, details, music and sign-ups will be posted in mid-July.
