Vocal Music


Students at Simpson have many vocal performing opportunities. Music performance majors, music education majors, students seeking a BA degree in music, and students majoring in other disciplines are eligible for all of Simpson's excellent performing groups.  A placement and minimum skills audition is required for involvement in any choir. Simpson was cited by the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) as the recipient of an award for a program of vocal excellence.
