The Brown University Chorus, 55 dedicated singers drawn from all concentrations within the University, is one of the oldest groups on campus. As well as performing regularly in Providence and New England, the choir has earned an international reputation over the past 30 years for the quality of its performances and most recently returned from a 2009 concert tour of Vienna and Prague, adding to their already impressive legacy as university ambassadors. Previous tours include a 2006 tour of Argentina and Uruguay, a 2004 tour of Russia and Finland, a 2002 tour of Costa Rica, and a 1999 tour of Italy. The chorus also enjoyed a 1996 journey through Iberia, a 1993 concert tour of the Mediterranean, with performances in Greece, Israel and Egypt, a three-week concert tour of the USSR and Scandinavia in 1990, and a four-week concert tour of the Pacific Rim, featuring concerts in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. In 1979, the Chorus was the first American collegiate performing group to tour China, while in 1976 the group spent one month in India at the invitation of the Indian Government, presenting concerts for Prime Minister Indira Ghandi and Mother Teresa.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Brown University Chorus is to perform contextually appropriate choral works with vocal excellence to provide participants, performers and audience alike, with a platform for discourse, discovery, enlightenment and innovation.
