The UCLA Chorale, a 110 voiced mixed-choir, is open to all students at UCLA. Each year the Chorale sings in a variety of languages and in a full range of styles. The rehearsal process for this ensemble develops general musicianship and provides training in choral singing while achieving high standards as a performing group. The group routinely combines with the Chamber Singers to present choral-orchestral works with UCLA Philharmonia in the historic venue, Royce Hall.
