The UWM University Choir is a 115-voice mixed (men and women) chorus with a mission to sing and perform outstanding choral literature at the highest artistic levels. Members of the choir are from all areas of study at UWM, including music majors, graduate students, english, education, architecture and business majors, among others. Many members of the University Choir sang in high school and were leaders in their high school choirs. The ensemble performs a diverse selection of both sacred and secular choral music in all styles and genres, and offers its singers a performing organization for their personal enrichment and musical fulfillment. Historically, the University Choir has sung concerts both on campus and around the greater Milwaukee region, including major works with the UWM Symphony Orchestra each fall.
