Laurentian Singers | St. Lawrence University Music

Laurentian Singers

A select chamber choir of undergraduate student singers, the Laurentians continue a 72-year legacy of choral excellence, performing regularly throughout the year on campus, in the North Country, and nationally and internationally on tour every year during spring break. Their far-ranging repertoire is drawn from the entire span of Euro-American classical traditions as well as world and popular idioms.

The Laurentian Singers go on tour every year during spring break in March. The former and current national capitols, Philadelphia and Washington DC, are the destinations this year. Therefore the focus of this year’s repertoire will be American music of all stripes—from colonial to contemporary, classical to popular, sacred to secular. Music by William Billings and Frank Ticheli, Aaron Copland and Dolly Parton, Randall Thompson and Steven Foster, and more.
