Here is a sample of a recent performance

The WKU Chorale is the flagship ensemble of the university, and is open by audition to all university students.  This ensemble of 36 voices sings music from the Renaissance to the contemporary, and everything in between. The ensemble is open to both majors and non-majors by competitive audition each semester.  Auditions generally occur at the end of each semester for the following semester.  Recent highlights include performances at the state KMEA convention (2010 and 2014), and overseas tours to Italy (2008) and Spain (2015).

The choral program at WKU has a long history of excellence in the choral art, having performed at past KMEA conventions and the Southern Division Convention of ACDA. The WKU Chorale collaborates regularly with the Southern Kentucky Choral Society and The Symphony at WKU to present major works. Performances in recent years have included the Requiems of Duruflé, Mozart, Garcia and Fauré, Mozart's Mass in C Minor, Bernstein Chichester Psalms, Poulenc's Gloria, Haydn's Paukenmesse, Brahms Requiem and Vaughan Williams Dona Nobis Pacem, Handel's Messiah and Orff's Carmina Burana.
