The Bucknell University Choir

Under the direction of Susan Solomon Beckley, The Bucknell University Choir offers students — whether they are majoring in music or not — the opportunity to learn and perform choral music at a high level together.

The Bucknell University Choir is Bucknell's select mixed (SATB) vocal ensemble, open to all members of the Bucknell community. Its members represent nearly every major field of study at the University. The University Choir performs a diverse repertoire drawn from every genre from the last seven centuries, presenting concerts of a cappella and accompanied works each semester.

Membership in the Bucknell University Choir is open to all who love to sing, including undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and staff of Bucknell University.
