Other Singing Opportunities
In addition to formal vocal education and the Conservatory's three choirs, there are many opportunities to sing at Wheaton. Students can engage with music in and outside of the Conservatory whether you major in music or another area.
COMING SOON! The John and Anita Nelson Center for Sacred Music will commission new sacred choral works each year by excellent composers from all over the world. These works will be premiered on campus by Wheaton College students. In addition to performing the new compositions, students, faculty, and others will witness the transformative process of music composition, performance, and ministry that are paramount in this work.
