Who We Are:

Peru State College Choirs hold the distinct privilege of being the second oldest choral program in Nebraska at the first institution of higher education in the state. Our program strives to create an atmosphere of inclusion where all are welcome to participate in our community of music making. Membership is open to all students, faculty, and community members who have experience in or endeavor to start singing. 

Performance Opportunities: 

Concert Choir

MUSC 102 – M/W from 12:30-1:45pm (Jindra 109) 

Women’s Choir

Applied Lessons 

MUSC 120-420 – Voice, Piano 

Quartets/Small Ensembles 

For students who are interested in performing in smaller, independent groups, various options are available. These opportunities are usually a subset of our large ensembles (Concert and Women’s Choir), but in certain circumstances, extracurricular groups are formed. 

Tuition Assistance and Scholarships:

In addition to the general music tuition waivers found here, the choral department offers additional scholarships to those who audition and meet requirements.
