This is the chamber choir of the School of Music. Participation in this ensemble, which is conducted by Laurence Ewashko, allows singers to expand their knowledge in many ways: by performing a wide variety of vocal styles and repertoire; by developing a sense of blend; and by improving their sight-reading, linguistic and vocal/choral ensemble skills. While limited to 24 singers who are primarily voice majors, competition is open to the entire student body through audition. Rehearsals take place once per week for two hours. The Calixa-Lavallée Choir performs regularly throughout the school year in a variety of concerts, both at the university and within the community at large.
