Hiram students have the unique opportunity to join local residents in song through two community ensembles. Community ensembles build on Hiram College's commitment to connecting students to local residents and forming a strong community. The men's and women's community ensembles perform separately and together, in one on-campus concert each fall and at several off-campus engagements.
Organized in 2005, the Hiram Women's Chorus is a college-community ensemble of 30-40 women who perform SSA arrangements and sometimes join the Men's Chorus for SATB selections. The group is open without audition to students, faculty, staff and women of all ages from nearby communities.
Conductor: Damaris Peters-Pike
The Hiram Men's Chorus is a college-community TTBB ensemble, open to students, faculty, staff and area residents. Members drive from Warren, Akron and Cleveland to participate. They sing a wide variety of repertoire, from folk music and spirituals to barbershop and classic popular song. They have premiered works of several area composers. The Men's Chorus appears both on and off campus.
