Founded in 1946, Furman Singers is one of the premier collegiate
ensembles in America. The group tours across the United States and Europe, showcasing a repertoire that covers everything from Renaissance motets to the finest choral music of the 20th century. Singers is open to majors and non-music majors, but auditions are required. Auditions are held at the beginning of each term using posted excerpts. For more information, contact Hugh Ferguson Floyd
Men's and Women's Chorales
The Men's and Women's Chorales perform three to four concerts each year, merging with the Furman Singers at the end of each term to present large oratorio/orchestral works. The Chorales are open to majors and non-music majors. For more information on the Women's Chorale, contact Dr. Vivian Hamilton. Men's Chorale, contact Dr. Rusty Keesler.
The chamber choir is a select group of vocalists who perform both accompanied and a cappella works. Chamber Choir participants receive a stipend and are all members of the Furman Singers. Auditions are held in the spring for the next year's ensemble. For more information, contact Dr. Hugh Floyd
Providing one of the most unique musical experiences on a college campus, the oratorio chorus is comprised of all the choral ensembles plus instrumentalists who are fulfilling their music education requirement or who enjoy singing but do not normally participate in a choral ensemble. At the end of each term, the chorus collaborates with the Furman Symphony Orchestra to deliver monumental works at the end of each term. If you are not currently performing with the Furman Singers or Chorales, you may still participate in the oratorio chorus. For more information, contact Dr. Hugh Floyd.
