MiraCosta Chamber Choir

MiraCosta Chamber Choir

This select vocal ensemble offers singers excellent choral music in a wide variety of styles.  We focus primarily on challenging repertoire for mixed voices, with a special emphasis on classical a cappella choral works.  Singers can expect to have an active performing schedule, both on and off campus, including festivals and tours.

Auditions are open to all voice majors, music majors, and all other students who have some experience with reading music or choral singing. Previous vocal training is not required, but will be helpful to singers in their first semesters of college-level choral studies.  For more information on vocal instruction at MiraCosta College, click here.
