The Eastman Chorale is a select ensemble of singers from the Eastman School of Music performing the finest choral repertoire from the past five centuries. The Chorale consists primarily of graduate and undergraduate students in vocal performance, conducting and music education. They have performed by invitation at conferences of the National Collegiate Choral Association and American Choral Directors Association. Repertoire in recent years has ranged from music of Bach, Palestrina and Brahms to works of Dominick Argento, Arvo Pärt, Melissa Dunphy, Hannah Lash, Caroline Shaw and Adolphus Hailstork.
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.
