The University Singers, a 24-voice ensemble, was established to bring musical and vocal excellence to Northwestern and the community of Alva. The University Singers tour regularly at the regional and national levels. Last spring, the ensemble embarked on a nine-day performing arts tour to China. They performed to sold out audiences in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Hangzhou.

Bohlmann, Hooker senior; Michael Brown, Geary sophomore; Chance Mayhall, Ponca City freshman; and Jeremy Stubbs, Magee junior. 

“It is a privilege and an honor to perform at this year’s Oklahoma State Music Educators conference,” said Dr. Irene Messoloras, fine arts chair and assistant professor of music.  “The University Singers have worked very hard and are excited to represent our school at this distinguished event.”

The University Singers have been praised by music educators across the state as being the ultimate embodiment of the choral art.

“They maintain the highest level of professional performance discipline, mental focus, and artistic musicality and expression,” Messoloras said.
