A select chamber choir of undergraduate student singers, the Laurentians continue a 74-year legacy of choral excellence, performing regularly throughout the year on campus, in the North Country, and nationally or internationally on tour during spring break each year. Their far-ranging repertoire is drawn from the entire span of Euro-American classical traditions as well as world and popular idioms.
This fall the Laurentian Singers developed a successful model for safe live in-person singing in Gunnison Chapel. What a joy it is to sing as a choir again! We were featured in a Facebook Live event for the virtual Homecoming/Family Weekend on October 16 and we followed that with a recording session on October 20. Over the rest of the semester we will be making more recordings of Thanksgiving and Christmas music to share with the Laurentian community. New members will be accepted through the remainder of the semester.
Singing in Gunnison Chapel will continue in Semester 2 as the Singers continue to prepare to go on tour to Bermuda, home to Laurentian Singers president Hana Bushara ‘20, during the break between Commencement and Semester 3 (April 26-May 2) if conditions permit. Our repertoire will focus on themes of diversity and inclusion as expressed through healing, hope, humility and a sense of home. Live concerts on campus are still in question, but the Laurentians will continue to share their music via YouTube, Facebook and other media.
