About the Chorus

The Brown University Chorus, 50 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. Under the 30-year tenure of Frederick Jodry, the Choir has toured extensively, most recently on a 2019 tour to Ireland, a 2017 tour of Croatia, and a 2015 concert tour of Cuba, adding to their already impressive legacy as University ambassadors. Previous trips include concert tours of Vienna and Prague, Argentina and Uruguay, Russia and Finland, and Italy. The chorus also enjoyed touring through Iberia, Greece, Israel and Egypt, the USSR and Scandinavia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. In 1979, the Chorus was the first American collegiate performing group to tour China, and in 1976 the group spent one month in India singing in India for Prime Minister Indira Ghandi and Mother Teresa.
