Women's Chorus is the only group in the Amherst College Choral Society comprised solely of women's voices (SSAA). Known as the Singing College, Amherst College has a very strong choral tradition. We hold various concerts throughout the academic year, often in conjunction with the other groups in the Choral Society: the Concert Choir (SATB), the Glee Club (TTBB), and the Madrigals (SATB). Auditions are held at the beginning of each semester. Congratulations to all of our new members!
We warmly welcome members of the Class of 2017!
Auditions for Fall 2013 will be held from August 31 to September 3. Please check the sign-up sheets near Room 3 in Arms Music Center.
Mallorie Chernin is the director of Women's Chorus.
Joseph Taff '13 is the assistant director.
