(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

Oriana Singers was founded in 1994 to serve the musical needs of highly talented undergraduate and graduate women. The 65-voice ensemble performs repertoire representing every musical period, genre and style in its two campus concerts per semester. The choir has been invited to perform at prestigious regional and national music conferences and has participated in tours within the state of Pennsylvania. Membership is determined by audition. The goal of the ensemble is to provide artistic, meaningful, and successful choral performances. To achieve this goal, the learning objectives for individual students include attention toward individual vocal development, increased musicianship skill, and the discovery of new means of artistic expression. In addition to these individual objectives, the conductor of the ensemble also teaches directly toward the objectives of ensemble tone, blend, balance, intonation, dynamics, diction, phrasing, etc. Grades are determined by a combination of vocal and musicianship assessments (both written and aural) and attendance at rehearsals and performances.
