Chorale

Chorale members singing Davidson College Chorale is the premier choral ensemble at Davidson. A highly select, auditioned choir comprised of 24 students from various academic disciplines, they perform the standard choral repertoire as well as newly composed and commissioned choral literature. The Chorale tours annually and represents Davidson College on the campus, regionally, and nationally.

In recent years the Chorale has toured nationally to Key West, Miami, Orlando, Savannah, Charleston, Atlanta, Birmingham, Chattanooga, and New Orleans. Internationally the Chorale has toured Prague, Salzburg, and Vienna, and in January 2014 will tour Ireland.

The Chorale is also active in the greater Charlotte area, having received invitations to perform concerts with UNC-Charlotte, The Oratorio Singers of the Charlotte Symphony, and many other local and professional choral organizations.

The Chorale's director is Christopher Gilliam, director of choral activities.
