The University Choir, under the direction of Dr. Beth Willer, is Bucknell's core mixed-voice ensemble, consisting of 50-60 members, and including students, faculty and staff from across the campus community. Performing a diverse repertoire drawn from the last seven centuries, the University Choir presents concerts of a cappella and accompanied works. Concerts on the Bucknell campus include bi-annual choral-orchestral works, collaborations with guest artists, world premieres of commissioned works and Bucknell's annual Christmas Candlelight Services at Rooke Chapel.
In addition to its local appearances, the University Choir continues a long tradition of touring both internationally and domestically, performing together with the Bucknell Camerata in distinguished venues across the globe. Recent destinations for the Bucknell choirs have included England, Wales, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, West Germany, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Spain, Poland, the Czech Republic, Italy and Croatia. Tours have included collaborations with premiere ensembles including Electric Phoenix (UK), Cambridge's Fitzwilliam String Quartet (UK), the Brewer Chamber Orchestra, the Washington National Symphony Orchestra, the Chorale of Simon Bolivar of Caracas (Venezuela), the Pennsylvania Ballet and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
