Majoring in math but love counting measures? Become a choral scholar!

Auditions for the Rockefeller Chapel Choir take place September 22–24. The Chapel Choir—mostly students, anchored by professional artists in residence in each section—has openings in all voice parts. Of those offered a place in the choir, four choral scholars are chosen. Choral scholars play a leading role in their sections and have opportunity for solo work at Chapel concerts and services. To sign up for an audition, see the Music Department's auditions page. For more information about the choral scholar program, view our choral flyer.

Charles Montgomery Gray choral scholars are named in memory of Charles Gray, distinguished historian and beloved husband of President Hanna Holborn Gray.

Bernard O. and Carol Jean Brown choral scholars are named in honor of the long association of Bernard Brown (dean of Rockefeller Chapel from 1976 to 1991) and his wife Carol Jean with the chapel and its music programs.

Elsbeth Thilenius choral scholars are named in honor of Elsbeth Thilenius to students who make the Chapel congregation glad with their music.
