Choral & Vocal Activities
We offer a variety of ensemble and lecture courses within the study of vocal music, including beginning, intermediate, and community choral ensembles and Class Voice.
To purchase or reserve tickets for upcoming events, please visit shastacollege.edu/tickets.
Beginning/Intermediate Voice (MUS 29/30)
A course in the essentials of ‘bel canto’ technique, open to all ages and experience levels and currently being taught in a distanced format over Zoom.
Concert Choir (MUS 40)
Our non-audition beginning choral ensemble, that provides both majors and non-majors with an introduction to the basic principles and practices of choral singing. We hope that this ensemble will resume rehearsals in 2022.
Community Chorale (MUS 42)
Our volunteer evening choral ensemble, wherein we tackle some of the gems of choral literature. This ensemble will begin rehearsals again in 2022, when we will be collaborating with the Shasta Symphony on Beethoven’s 9th!
Vocal Jazz (MUS 35)
Our advanced, audition-only ensemble, designed to provide music majors and other skilled singers with experience singing challenging vocal jazz and contemporary choral arrangements, along with stylistically-appropriate solos.
Opera Scenes (MUS 51) and the Vocal Institute (MUS 50)
Opera at Shasta College has a long history of running fully-staged productions, and of mounting three-week summer intensive workshops for singers. We hope that these activities will return!
