• About the Choirs

    The mission of the University of San Diego Choral Ensembles is to promote singing in community. We believe in the transformative power of the human voice and the expressive potential of the human body to tell stories and imagine new worlds.

    The USD Concert Choir, under the direction of Paul Infantino, rehearses on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 4:00-5:20 in Camino Hall 153. Members of the Concert Choir may audition to participate in the USD Choral Scholars program, a chamber ensemble focused on innovative artistic practices and collaborations, which meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:20 in Camino 153. The USD Choral Scholars is facilitated by Emilie Amrein.

     

    Beginning in November, the USD Choirs will host a pop-up Gospel Choir for the greater USD community, in a collaboration with Ken Anderson and the San Diego MLK Community Choir. To participate, we are asking community members to attend at least three of the four open rehearsals we're offering on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:20 in Camino 153. Rehearsal dates are November 15, 22, 29, and December 6, with a performance on the evening of December 9.
