The Goshen College Chamber Choir of 28 singers and Chorale of 65 singers perform accompanied and a cappella repertoire from early to contemporary periods. The choirs sing primarily sacred literature from the classical choral tradition, spirituals, and folk songs. Both groups present programs on and off campus, and Chamber Choir tours regularly.
The Goshen College Men’s Choir and Women’s World Choir, each with at least 50 members, are also part of the annual tour rotation, and sing both on and off campus.
The Women’s Choir’s mission is to discover and perform music of many cultures, both national and international, particularly indigenous cultures. Their performances highlight the role of women in these cultures, celebrating the unique spirit and energy that women bring to the world as creators and sustainers of life and culture.
