The Schreiner University Choir program is currently comprised of three choirs; the University Choir, Concert Choir and a Women’s Small Ensemble. The styles of music rehearsed and performed vary from classical, spirituals, musical theater, jazz to pop music. The choirs are open to both music and non-music majors. Faculty and Staff are also welcome to join the choir where the atmosphere of rehearsals is focused yet festive with an emphasis on group unity and respect for all involved in the ensemble. In 2007, members of the University Choir performed and toured in Italy for ten days. They sang in the Vatican and also participated in a choral festival near Verona. The choir also performed with the Symphony of the Hills orchestra in April and will again participate in the Symphony of the Hills November concert. In February, the choir sang the National Anthem at a San Antonio Spurs game and in March, the choir presented a dinner theater event that featured the music of the Beatles and other works of various styles. In 2008, the choir will again feature a dinner theater event and sing the National Anthem at a Spurs game. The Schreiner Choir Department performs at various community locations and events such as retirement homes, foster homes, and various other non-profit organizations.
