    • This ensemble is a mixed-voice choir made up of Voorhees University students who wish to continue to have music in their lives. These students come from different backgrounds, classifications, and majors but they have one thing in common: they love to sing. The choir attracts singers who like a challenge, singing a wide variety of music at a professional standard with a weekly performance deadline. The group performs in concerts, chapel, assemblies, events, and collaborates with other musical groups, both on and off campus.
