The Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton Chorale is an audi­tioned advanced under­grad­u­ate ensem­ble of music and non-music majors from the Seat­tle cam­pus. UW Chorale appears annually as a guest ensem­ble with the Seat­tle Sym­phony, and has sung in joint con­certs with Revalia Male Cham­ber Choir in Esto­nia, and for the Princess of Swe­den. UW Chorale appeared at the Lat­vian Song Fes­ti­val in Riga, dur­ing the sum­mer of 2013 and the Estonian Festival of Song and Dance in 2019, as one of the only Amer­i­can choirs. Their first two solo CDs, Climb and Refuge, are now available for purchase at iTunesCD Baby or from Dr. Wyers.  A third CD, Resonant Streams, was released in 2018 and was featured in a review by Gramophone magazine. UW Chorale values its community; projects are chosen to highlight the diversity and cross-disciplinary interests of its members.

Meets Mon­days & Wednes­days 3:30–5:20 pm in Music Build­ing, Room 213
