Men's Chorus

The Xavier University Men's Chorus is open to male students, faculty and staff from all disciplines on campus, as well men from throughout the greater Cincinnati area. This collaborative effort seeks to bring together men that have a love of singing and a desire to work together to achieve excellence in performing the great body of repertoire for men's voices. This repertoire includes many styles with a special emphasis on the standards of male chorus literature. The XU Men's Chorus frequently collaborates with other XU ensembles as well as other men’s choruses from throughout the city and region, performing multiple concerts each semester. In March of 2016, the XU Men’s Chorus made their first appearance at the national conference of the association of Intercollegiate Male Choruses and performed for the Ohio Music Education Association’s 2017 Professional Development Conference this past February. The group opened this year’s season by performing on the Xavier Music Series with the internationally recognized male jazz group, The Four Freshmen.
