Symphonic Choir and University Symphony Orchestra
The Symphonic Choir, Elizabeth Joosten, conductor, specializes in the study and performance of music composed for chorus and orchestra. The Symphonic Choir is one of seven choral ensembles on the UW-Eau Claire campus, recognized as “Wisconsin’s Singing University.” The group is comprised of students from many scholastic disciplines within the University as well as interested singers from the communities of Eau Claire and the greater Chippewa Valley. Two major concerts are presented each year with the University Symphony Orchestra. Recent works performed include Handel’s Messiah, Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, Poulenc’s Gloria, Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Opera Choruses by Mozart, Verdi and Bizet, and Orff’s Carmina Burana.
The University Symphony Orchestra is a sixty member student ensemble performing the symphonic repertoire of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. Under the direction of Nobuyoshi Yasuda, the ensemble presents an on-campus concert each semester, performs annually in a tour to high schools in Wisconsin and Minnesota, performs with the Symphonic Choir, accompanies one fully-staged opera or musical play each year, and each spring is one of the featured ensembles at UW-Eau Claire’s nationally-acclaimed Viennese Ball.
