University Singers

Join the DU University Singers!

The Duquesne University Singers engages alumni, community members, faculty, staff and students in inspiring choral experiences. Part of Duquesne's family of three choirs (including the Voices of Spirit and Pappert Chorale), the University Singers is a multigenerational mixed choir of 40–60 voices. The choir performs all types of choral music in two concerts per semester, including exciting collaborations with Duquesne's choral and instrumental ensembles. Prospective singers should have prior choral experience and basic music reading skills.
