Virginia Wesleyan transitions from college to university May 23 - August 1. Please be patient as this transition occurs.

Wesleyan Festival Chorus

Sing with the best!

The Wesleyan Festival Chorus offers singers an opportunity to perform in a large chorus under the direction of our nation's finest choral conductors. Offered as part of the University's summer music conference, participation is open to all and music is provided. Singers are responsible for learning the music in advance of the "polishing" rehearsals with the guest conductors.

To join the chorus for either event, email sbilly@vwu.edu
