Laurentian Singers

Laurentian Singers

A select chamber choir of undergraduate student singers, the Laurentians continue a 78-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 classical traditions as well as world and popular idioms.

The Laurentian Singers typically perform for high-profile events on campus including Matriculation, Convocation, and Commencement. In Spring 2024, the ensemble will hold its Winter Retreat on February 3; tour North & South Carolina during spring break; perform a pre-tour concert on Sunday, March 10; and present a spring concert in collaboration with the St. Lawrence Choral Society on Saturday, April 20.

In your audition, you’ll be led through a series of exercises to assess your vocal range. As part of a quartet with other members, you will also sing your part (S, A, T, or B) in the St. Lawrence University alma mater, which will be made available to you at the time you schedule your audition so that you may prepare it in advance.
