Choral Ensembles

Whether you are a graduate student or freshman, experienced or novice, the University of Iowa's choral program offers a variety of ensembles for your participation.


Kantorei is the premier choral ensemble of the University, consisting of about 30 graduate students. Kantorei presents four to five concerts on campus each year, as well as a number of off-campus performances. Superior sight-reading is desirable.

University Choir

University Choir is a select, advanced choir of 50-60 singers, primarily undergraduate students. They present four to five concerts per year and combine to perform two major works with the University Symphony Orchestra. Good singers with sight reading competency are required.


This select ensemble of 50-70 singers is open to UI students, staff, and faculty. Camerata usually presents three concerts per year and joins the UI Symphony Orchestra for two concerts of major works.

Voxman Chorale

Voxman Chorale is a select chorus of approximately 35 treble singers (sopranos/altos) that presents three to four concerts per year.  As with other ensembles, it is open to singers from the University of Iowa.
