Choral Art Society

The OWU Choral Art Society is a large ensemble of 45-70 singers open to all OWU students by audition, regardless of major. We perform a variety of sacred and secular choral literature, including choral/orchestral works. Choral Art Society sings regularly on campus and normally tours within the central Ohio area once a year. Rehearsals are held twice a week on Tuesday 6-8 p.m. and Friday 12:05-1 p.m.

Chamber Choir

Note: Chamber Choir is on hiatus for the 2021-2022 academic year and will be offered again in the 2022-2023 academic year.

The Chamber Choir is a select ensemble of 20-26 members performing repertoire from many styles, with special emphasis on Renaissance, Baroque and modern music. Auditions are open to all OWU students with weekly rehearsals twice a week on Tuesday 4:15-5:15 p.m. and Thursday 4:15-5:15 p.m. In addition to performances throughout the central Ohio area, the Chamber Choir has toured Italy every 2-3 years as part of the OWU Connection travel learning program.

Contact the conductor, Dr. Jason A. Hiester ( to set up a Zoom conversation and audition for either ensemble.
