Profile The SCC Choirs have a rich history of choral music education and performance that started in 1968.  Clive Mefford ('68-'70) and Doreen Irwin ('77-'13) are some of the notable SCC choral professors who have help shaped our current program.  The ensembles have traveled and performed in seventeen different countries and have participated twice in performing masterworks at Carnegie Hall.  The College Choir and Vocal Ensembles rehearse and perform a diverse range of choral literature from traditional to contemporary and from Western to Non-Western traditions.

#COLLEGECHOIR (MUP 355)

This choral performance ensemble is our largest vocal ensemble. It is designed for the music student or the general student interested in developing or learning how to sing in choral ensembles. The course includes rehearsal and performance of choral music covering a wide variety of styles. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to demonstrate the ability to read, sing, and interpret choral music from different genres and historical periods.

VOCALe (MUP402-405)

This vocal ensemble is an auditioned chamber-sized choral ensemble. This course is designed for the student who has choral experience and/or the ability to read music notation. The ensemble focuses its time on learning the inner workings of ensemble singing through the study, rehearsing, and performance of small ensemble choral literature. The Vocal Ensemble will represent Sacramento City College through on and off campus performances and workshops
