The Choral Union is one of Lehigh's most successful outreach programs, bringing townspeople, faculty, staff, and students together to perform on campus three times each year. The Choral Union combines with our other ensembles to perform masterworks of the choral-orchestral repertoire such as Beethoven's 9th Symphony and Orff's Carmina Burana, as well as opera choruses, a cappella repertoire and works specially composed for them. No audition is required for the Choral Union, but singing experience is recommended.
