    Formed well over half a century ago, the mixed-voice University of Scranton Concert Choir is a 50-member ensemble made up of students from majors spanning the University’s curriculum, brought together by their love of music. They are known for their eclectic and diverse styles of programming, and their selections on this concert range from Renaissance to calypso, traditional hymn to South African anthem. All enrolled Scranton students are eligible for membership in the Performance Music vocal and instrumental ensembles.

    Now in its 10th season, Scranton Brass Orchestra is a fully professional 28-member ensemble comprised of brass and percussion players/teachers from across the region. Since its founding in June 2011, the group’s performances have been free and open to the public, and have featured nationally and internationally acclaimed guests, among them the most acclaimed brass players of our time.
