An Illustrious Tradition
Founded in 1963 by William D. Hall, Ph.D., the Chapman University Singers have sung throughout the U.S. and Europe, and performed in private audience for Pope John Paul II. An all-undergraduate ensemble, the University Singers include vocal performance and music education majors from Chapman University’s heralded Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music. The Singers are led by Stephen Coker, Ph.D., who served previously on the choral faculties of Portland State University, the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and Oklahoma City University. In addition to his academic work, Dr. Coker has conducted choirs, workshops and festivals in South Korea, Taiwan, Portugal, Israel and Sweden.
The University Singers represent the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music within the College of Performing Arts at Chapman University. The college also includes the departments of Dance and Theatre. Students enjoy exceptional training and academic opportunities that emphasize artistic collaboration, innovative curricula, and community outreach programs. This three-fold approach to arts education not only trains great performers—it also develops a generation of artists with the capacity to create means of expression yet to be imagined.
A Bright Future
In spring 2015, the college will host the grand opening of the Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts. This world-class 1,100-seat facility represents Chapman University’s commitment to the arts, and is destined to become an extraordinary venue for live performances in Southern California.
