UNO Chamber Choir
The Chamber Choir is the premier small choral ensemble in the Department of Music. Auditions are required for membership in this ensemble, and this choir is a mix of music majors and non-music majors. All singers have an especially strong interest in singing in a small ensemble and performing challenging literature. The Chamber Choir specializes in a cappella literature, performing repertoire covering all style periods from the Renaissance to the present day and is directed by Dr. Matthew Harden.
The choir appears frequently in the metropolitan area performing at the Joslyn Art Museum, the Western Heritage Museum, area churches, and other venues. In March of 2008, the UNO Chamber Choir traveled to Xalapa, Omaha's sister city in Mexico, performed a series of concerts, and toured Veracruz, a beautiful state in eastern Mexico. In November of 2009, the Chamber Choir was chosen to perform at the Nebraska Music Educators Association Annual Conference in Lincoln. In May of 2011, the choir joined other UNO choirs and choirs from around the United States to perform Faure's Requiem in Carnegie Hall under the direction of Dr. Harden.
