The Notre Dame College Choral Department offers a variety of vocal ensembles to students, faculty, staff, and community members. It is our mission to educate our members with musical tools that are transferable to various academic, social, and artistic interests. Students do not have to have previous choral experience to join. However, students are encouraged to take MU 103-Intro to Musicianship (along with choir) during their first semester in order to be better equipped for success in our wonderful music ensembles. Performing Arts Scholarships up to $10,000 are available for incoming students.
