Eastman Women’s Chorus

Philip Silvey, Director

The Eastman Women’s Chorus is a select ensemble made up of Eastman music majors and women in other majors throughout the University. The ensemble is dedicated to the performance of beautiful and compelling repertoire created with real women’s voices in mind, including music from the Venetian Ospedali, the German Frauenchor, and contemporary female composers. Recent performances have included Nicolai Porpora’s Magnificat,Gabriel Fauré’s Messe Basse, and Roxanna Panufnik’s Olivia. The Women’s Chorus enjoys collaborating with other women’s organizations throughout the Rochester community in its annual “By Women, For Women, Benefiting Women” concert.

Auditions take place during the first three days of the fall semester. For details, contact Philip Silvey, or Dr. Weinert
