About this ensemble:
Founded in Spring 2005, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Community Chorus is comprised of nearly 100 members drawn from UALR students, faculty, and staff, as well as the greater Little Rock community. In March 2009, the Community Chorus celebrated its fifth anniversary with a performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
The choir is open to singers at all levels of musical ability who wish to participate in choral masterpieces accompanied by full orchestra. No formal audition is required. The Community Chorus performs jointly with the UALR Concert Choir in two major concerts each year.
