The Sterling Chorale will serve as the primary choral performing ensemble of the institution. Students will audition for this ensemble and it will represent Sterling College on several small tours throughout the fall semester and one large tour in the spring semester. International travel will occur at least once every four years.
The Concert Choir will be an open ensemble, and any Sterling College student will be free to participate. It will perform on and off-campus several times throughout the academic year. All incoming freshmen wishing to participate in a choral ensemble will be required to join this choir during their first year at Sterling College.
The Highland Singers serve the college, churches and schools by making three mini-tours each year and provide the opportunity for participation in a smaller vocal ensemble. This group performs both traditional chamber choir repertoire from all historical periods and styles and also performs a wide variety of contemporary styles. Members of this ensemble must also participate in the Sterling Chorale.
