Concert Choir

Concert Choir

The Wheaton College Concert Choir is made up of approximately fifty young women and men with a passion for choral music.

Menu

Led by Dr. John William Trotter, the ensemble provides an ideal performance venue for experienced and motivated choral singers whose goal is to make music at a high level. It also provides an experience of great value for those intending to make music their career.

The Wheaton College Concert Choir has frequently been honored with invitations to perform on concert series and at regional and national conventions, to lead worship in churches, and to perform with professional ensembles. They also perform in more unconventional situations, ranging from soup kitchens and furniture stores to public lectures and prisons. Taken together, these varied experiences

enrich students’ understanding of the vocation of the musician in the world. Recently, the Choir has also enjoyed exploring interdisciplinary collaborations and engaging in musical improvisation with audiences.

The Choir’s ambitious performance schedule is motivated by a belief in the transformative power of music. The ensemble strives to present audiences with musical offerings characterized by a deep and evident understanding of music and text, a high level of technical proficiency, and courage and immediacy in performance, all so that the power and depth of musical works may be experienced afresh by those who listen. Believing that music is a gift from a loving God, the Choir values sacred repertoire in particular for the opportunity it provides to highlight, deepen and enrich the spiritual experiences and understanding of performers and audience members alike.
