The Advanced Treble Chorale is an auditioned large ensemble that performs challenging choral music from all style periods for treble voices. This choir consists of advanced vocalists who are music majors and minors, as well as non-majors from a variety of backgrounds and interests. The Advanced Treble Chorale is open to all students on campus, and welcome and encourage everyone to audition.

Enrollment

Students may enroll in this ensemble after being admitted through an Ensemble Audition. The ensemble meets MTWR from 1:00 - 1:50 pm in the Performing Arts Center. Credits are repeatable and may be used towards electives, upper division, and total graduation requirements.

Vocal Assessment

Singers who would like to perform in this must complete an audition during Fall Ensemble Auditions. Students who miss Ensemble Auditions should contact our Director of Choral Activities, Professor Tim Fitzpatrick

International and Regional Tours

The Advanced Treble Chorale has been selected numerous times to perform at the Northwest Regional ACDA conferences, which are held at various locations in the Pacific Northwest. Additionally, this ensemble most recently traveled to Estonia, with plans to tour Europe again in the future.

High School Festival

Every year, The WWU Choral Area invites high schools from around Washington State to participate in a non-auditioned festival for soprano/alto voices, and a separate festival for tenor/bass voices. In the past, these two festivals have been offered at different times of the year. Starting fall 2018, they will be integrated, and offered on the same day! On the last Friday of each October, the newly integrated festival offers high school singers the opportunity to be part of a mass choir experience in which they sing alongside collegiate level students, have the opportunity to be coached by renowned area clinicians and hear collegiate level soloists and choral ensembles. The event is a great buy-in for students new to the choral experience and supports high school teachers seeking to grow their choral programs through this motivating and inspiring festival
