Voice at Western

St. Cecilia Singers is a vibrant choral ensemble of women’s voices joining together to make beautiful music! Here you will find a supportive environment, which encourages the development of your singing voice in a choral setting. Members of this choir are committed to achieving excellence through individual and group study. The transformative power of choral music nurtures a cooperative spirit, historical, social and cultural awareness, and the intellectual, emotional and spiritual enrichment of each singer. The St. Cecilia Singers has a long-standing tradition at the Don Wright Faculty of Music and performs an eclectic variety of repertoire in concerts on and off campus. Placement in this ensemble is by audition, based on vocal and sight-reading abilities.
