The choir at SNHU began in 2013. Currently, the choir is made up of eight students. Brenda LaForce, SNHU Concert Choir Director and Private Voice Teacher, started directing the choir this September.

“The choir has 8 wonderful singers at the moment. Between COVID and a few years without having a consistent director, enrollment has declined. I know there are a lot of fantastic singers on campus and I am hoping that we can build it back up,” said LaForce.

The choir’s most recent performance was on April 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Banquet Hall located in the upper dining hall on campus. The music performed was a tribute to the longest-running shows on Broadway. The performance included works from shows like “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera, “All That Jazz” from Chicago, “Circle of Life” from The Lion King, “For Good” from Wicked, “Memory” from Cats, as well as a medley from Les Misérables

Students who are taking private voice lessons at SNHU have the chance to showcase the work they have been doing in class. Each student has their own style and genre they are singing which they are performing for the event, “Voices of SNHU,” which is being held in the Last Chapter Pub on April 16 at 6 p.m.

“Voices of SNHU is an evening at the pub where the private voice students from the semester have a chance to show off what they have been working on. Students are singing a huge variety of music from Sara Bareilles and Evanescence, from Broadway to Italian Arias. They have their big night on April 16th at 6:00 PM in the pub,” said LaForce.

Anyone can join the choir at SNHU. Students who are interested in joining can sign up at the same time that other course sign-ups happen. Students can take it for 0 or 1 credit.
