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 with a 20-year background in vocal pedagogy, choral and solo song literature, and experience in popular styles and musical theater.

    Artistic Director and Conductor: 

    Jon Erik Schreiber

    Accompanist:

    Esjoy Wong

    Cost:

    $50 per semester, plus $25 registration fee; total of $75 for the semester; high school and college-age students pay only the registration fee (see our Scholarships Page for funding assistance—high school students only).

    Eligibility:

    Singers who match pitch; music reading ability desirable; age 15 (ninth grade for the upcoming academic year) and older.

    Auditions:

    Individuals auditioning do not need to bring anything prepared. Simply come ready to sight-read and to vocalize. All auditions are scheduled with the conductor, Jon Erik Schreiber. To schedule your audition, e-mail him at jonerikschreiber@gmail.com. If you’re unable to e-mail him, contact the IUPCMS at 724-357-4565.

    For the fall semester, all singers must audition, regardless of whether having sung in previous years. For the spring semester, only those new to the choir must audition.

    If you have previously registered in the IUPCMS utilizing the online registration form and sung in the choir, simply e-mail Jeff Wacker at jwacker@iup.edu that you plan on participating again for the upcoming semester.
