Eastman Chorale is a select ensemble of singers from the Eastman School of Music performing a variety of the finest choral repertoire from the past five centuries, ranging from Renaissance masterworks to first performances of compositions from the 21st century. The Chorale consists primarily of students in vocal performance, music education and conducting. The choir tours annually, and has performed at both ACDA and MENC conferences. Repertoire in recent years has ranged from music of Bach, Palestrina and Brahms to works of Dominick Argento, Steven Stucky, Arvo Pärt, and George Rochberg.
The Chorale participates in annual recordings of selected compositions by Eastman student composers, and collaborates regularly with the Eastman-Rochester Chorus and Eastman orchestras in performances of the monuments of the repertoire for chorus and orchestra.
