Choirs

There is a place for you in the Illinois State University Choirs! Choirs are general education classes open to any Illinois State University student wishing to participate. You do not have to be a music major to perform, though some require an audition. Three credits in a music ensemble fulfills the fine arts general education requirement.

Performances of the Illinois State University choirs are open to the Illinois State University community and the public. Tickets are available at the Center for the Performing Arts (CPA) Box Office. Some concerts are available by livestream.
