Letter from the Choral Director

Dear Cal Poly Vocal Enthusiast,

Welcome to Cal Poly. As Director of Choral Activities, I want to congratulate you on being accepted to one of our nation's finest universities. I know you will enjoy your time with us surrounded by other great students, a vibrant faculty, as well as living in a very beautiful part of California.

I am writing because I understand that you are interested in choral/vocal music. Cal Poly has a very active choral/vocal program.  I encourage you to become involved. The choral ensembles are open to all students on the campus. Students from Engineering, Architecture, Business, Math, Social Sciences, Agriculture, and all others are highly visible as members of our choirs. Well over 80% of our choir membership comes from non-music majors.

Please visit the Cal Poly Choirs Web page. There you will find information about each choir and some general information regarding our yearly events. As a member of PolyPhonics, The University Singers, or the Early Music Ensemble, you will have the opportunity to perform in quarterly campus concerts, as well as tour locally and internationally.

Please take a moment to complete the Online Interest Form. This form does not indicate a commitment. It only provides us with your name, voice type, and contact information so that we can provide you with dates/times for auditions, as well as other important information that will help finalize your decision as to whether you decide to be a member of the Cal Poly Choirs this next term or in the future.

If you would like more specific information regarding the Cal Poly Choral Program, please don’t hesitate to send me an e-mail me or call.   I will be very happy to correspond with you.

Have a great remainder of your summer. I look forward to meeting you in person in September!
