CSUN Choirs

Choral music has long been an important part of the Northridge campus. Students graduating from this area have gone on to impressive careers including solo singing, opera, music administration, conducting, and teaching. Each year the choral area sponsors a choral festival featuring the top high school and college choral groups in the state.

Choral ensembles on the California State University, Northridge campus have distinguished themselves for more than 30 years with excellent performances at state and national festivals and conferences, as well as featured performances throughout Europe and Russia. Students performing in the choral ensembles are provided a solid foundation in choral education, and are exposed to the wide array of musical genres.

In recent years the Northridge Singers has regularly collaborated with the CSUN Symphony Orchestra in performing some of the major instrumental/choral work of music history including the Requiems of Mozart, Brahms and Faure and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. In the spring of 2023 they collaborate with the orchestra and rock artist Serj Tankian leading to a release of a live album in the fall of 2023.
