Kimberly Dunn Adams, Conductor
Collegiate Singers is an auditioned soprano, alto, tenor and bass choral ensemble open to students from all four classes, as well as graduate students. The ensemble meets four times weekly, Monday through Thursday from 2 to 2:50 p.m. Students receive academic credit for participation in this choir. Collegiate Singers is conducted by the director of choral activities, Dr. Kimberly Dunn Adams.
Each year, "Collegiates" sing in a variety of languages and in a full range of styles. The rehearsal process for this ensemble develops general musicianship and provides training in choral singing while achieving high standards as a performing group; in this way, Collegiate Singers balances musical training with a performance-based curriculum. The group performs at every major choral concert on WMU's campus and gives outreach concerts within the Kalamazoo community.
Collegiate Singers is one of eight vocal ensembles in the School of Music at Western Michigan University, including the University Chorale, Women's Chorus, Grand Chorus, Gold Company, Gold Company II, Opera Workshop, and Collegium Musicum. Thousands of students have been involved in singing at WMU, and for many it begins right here. If you are interested in belonging to a diverse, artistic community, don't miss singing with a WMU chorus. You will sing great music, make new friends, and become part of a legendary choral tradition.
