Brown University Chorus
L. Frederick Jodry, Director
Interim director, Stephan Griffin
The Brown University Chorus is a great way to meet a wide range of undergraduate and graduate students, while working toward a high artistic goal of beautiful singing. For dedicated singers, regular required attendance at rehearsals and sectionals and frequent performance opportunities, and social gatherings guarantee a rewarding experience.
The Chorus may be taken for credit (one half credit per semester).
