Vocal Chamber Ensemble

The Vocal Chamber Ensemble is an auditioned ensemble composed of student singers drawn from the Skidmore Chorus. This select ensemble performs a variety of challenging repertoire from all time periods. VCE rehearses Mondays from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. in Wilson Chapel and Wednesdays from 5 to 6 p.m. on the stage in the Zankel Music Center. Auditions may be scheduled by appointment. The audition consists of vocalizing, sight-singing, and learning a short musical excerpt. Once a member of the ensemble, students are invited to participate all subsequent semesters. VCE provides high-level musicians with challenging repertoire, opportunities for off-campus performances, solo vocal opportunities, and leadership roles in the music department. For more information on auditioning, contact Director Katie Gardiner at 518-580-8433.

Students interested in voice lessons should contact Sylvia Stoner-Hawkins.
