NUCS com­prises a Con­cert Choir and Cham­ber Singers, which per­form in a con­cert at the end of both the Fall and Spring semes­ters. The Choral Soci­ety fos­ters aes­thetic and edu­ca­tional expe­ri­ences through the rehearsal and per­for­mance of choral music, and pro­motes har­mo­nious social inter­ac­tion among mem­bers of the North­east­ern community.

Con­cert Choir is open to all qual­i­fied singers by audi­tion, which are held at the begin­ning of each semes­ter after rehearsal, and can also be sched­uled other times by appoint­ment. Rehearsals are held gen­er­ally on Wednes­days from 6:00 to 8:30 pm in the Fen­way Cen­ter. The Cham­ber Singers is an ensem­ble of 16–24 singers who are cho­sen by audi­tion. Rehearsals are held on Wednes­day from 8:30 to 9:30 pm.

Cho­rus is an extracur­ric­u­lar activ­ity for many, but can also be taken as a free 1-credit elec­tive by reg­is­ter­ing for MUS U904. This course may be repeated for credit. Mem­bers of the Choral Soci­ety come from all back­grounds and majors, and any inter­ested mem­ber of the NU com­mu­nity is eli­gi­ble to join.
