Dedicated to performing excellence in the choral art, the choral program at SMU has a rich tradition dating back more than 40 years. Throughout this period, members of SMU choral ensembles have gone on to successful careers as vocalists, conductors, music educators and church music leaders, some achieving national and international acclaim in their field. The tradition continues this year with concerts by our outstanding mixed choirs, the Meadows Chorale and the Meadows Chamber Singers, and our superb women’s ensemble, Diva Dolce, all under the direction of Pamela Elrod Huffman, Director of Choral Activities. Students of all ages and academic concentrations may audition for any of the SMU choirs.
Due to the current COVID health crisis, all in-person choral activities have been canceled for the Fall 2020 semester. However, the choirs will still participate in virtual singing projects and online lectures and presentations by well-known guest artists. If you are interested in participating in the choral community, please contact Dr. Huffman at firstname.lastname@example.org. And stay tuned to this website for information regarding the Spring 2021 semester.
