U of L Singers

Choir singers in concert

 

Conductor: Jaimee Jarvie 

The U of L Singers are an auditioned mixed chamber choir that includes music majors and talented non-majors across campus. The choir was begun by Emeritus Professor George Evelyn in 1982, and has enjoyed many years of success. The choir performs in a wide variety of styles, and has premiered several works by Canadian composers including Ruth Watson Henderson, Dean Blair, David Squires, and Lydia Adams. The group has performed as invited guests at the national conferences of the Association of Canadian Choral Conductors, the Alberta Music Conference, and has been a finalist in the CBC Amateur Choir competition on several occasions. In spring 2002, the Singers competed at the Cork International Music Festival in Cork, Ireland.
