Xavier Choir Performance

“Fall 2021 Update: As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Xavier is actively working to codify the choral offerings for the fall of 2021. Students from any field of study who wish to join a choral ensemble should contact Dr. Matthew Swanson ( for more information, and to indicate their interest. We look forward to hearing from you!”

Concert Choir, an ensemble committed to choral excellence, is open to music majors and non-music majors alike. The ensemble sings throughout the city and frequently collaborates with orchestras, instrumentalists, and area conductors. In 2018, they performed with Queen City Opera under the direction of Dr. Isaac Selya. Concert Choir sings a range of repertoire from Renaissance music to music of living composers. A placement hearing is held at the beginning of each semester for acceptance into the ensemble. Contact Dr. Matthew Swanson for more information.
