University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee

UWM Choirs

You don't have to be a music major to have a voice at UWM!

Would you like to become a member of one (or more!) of the choral ensembles that UWM has to offer?

Read on, read on!

The choral ensemble experience at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee is diversified and comprehensive, ranging from traditional to experimental, classical to gospel, and intimate to grandiose. Most ensembles are available to both music majors and non-music majors, providing opportunities for participation at all levels of interest and expertise, and bringing together musically interested students from across campus. Each of the five choirs has its own identity, but choirs also combine for special events such as annual end-of-semester concerts and major concerts with orchestra.

Each year over 300 students take part in choral activities at UWM. Participants represent nearly all academic disciplines and majors. Seventy-five percent of the singers are majoring in areas other than music, and nearly all are undergraduates. All choir members enjoy the opportunity to sing in the beautiful, 800-seat Helen Bader Concert Hall of the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts on campus.

Please check our calendar for concert dates and special events.
