Indiana Community Choir

The Indiana Community Choir provides individuals in the Indiana region the opportunity to sing and perform great choral literature not typically accessible to choirs in a rural region.

It is also the opportunity to learn choral and singing techniques from a master singer, conductor, and music teacher.

Fall 2021 COVID-19 Update

The Indiana Community Choir will not be meeting during the fall 2021 semester as we continue the search for a highly qualified music director and conductor. We hope to make that hire this fall and bring back the choir for the spring 2022 semester.

However, our other two ensembles, the Crimson Youth Choir and Indiana Concert Band will both be meeting this semester.  Registration for both is currently open, and remains open until one week after each ensembles start date.  Registration for both online and in-person private lessons is also currently OPEN and will be ongoing and rolling throughout the semester. For more information on lessons, please see the Private Lessons page.

For additional information from the IUP Community Music School, please see the IUPCMS home page, and for more information from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, please see the comprehensive Coronavirus Information page.
