The Lynchburg College Choral Union, celebrating 10 years in 2012, presents high-quality performances of choral works from a variety of musical periods.
Our desire is to promote in our members and our audiences an appreciation of music of different styles and cultures.
Recent repertoire includes Mozart's Coronation Mass, Mendelssohn's Elijah, Beethoven's Mass in C, Orff's Carmina Burana, and Durufle's Requiem.
Membership is open to all singers - both from the College and the local community - who meet the requirements of voice and musicianship.
If you are interested in joining the Choral Union, contact Dr. Jong Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or 434.544.8443.

If you are interested in joining the Choral Union, contact Dr. Jong Kim at email@example.com to arrange an audition. Generally, membership will be automatically renewed each season.
Each singer will be assigned an appropriate voice part after the director has examined his/her overall musical ability, voice range, and color.
Choir members are expected to attend and be prompt for all rehearsals, performances, and other events (i.e. fundraising events, concert tours, and special performances). Additional at-home practice of an hour or two each week is expected.
Rehearsals are held at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays in the Helen Wood Recital Hall in the lower level of Snidow Chapel on the Lynchburg College campus.
Members are allowed two excused absences during the season. Singers must discuss with the director exceptions due to schedule conflicts, personal or family illness, or other emergencies.
Membership dues are $35 per semester for non-student members. Membership dues are waived for LC students because they register for the Choral Union as a class.
The Choral Union presents three regularly scheduled concerts each year: a fall concert, Handel's Messiah, and a spring concert. Occasionally, the LCCU is asked to present special performances.
The Friends of the Lynchburg College Choral Union
Membership dues and concert ticket sales are important sources of revenue for the LCCU. However, revenue from ticket sales and dues does not cover all concert expenses.
Individuals, corporations, foundations, and organizations that provide financial and "in-kind" support to the Choral Union are Friends of the Lynchburg College Choral Union and are recognized in our concert programs. All contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
If you would like to make a contribution to the Choral Union, please contact the music department at 434.544.8344.
The conductor's council serves as the governing body of the Choral Union. Officers are members of the choir and serve 2-year terms.
