Comprised of students and faculty
of the University of California at Davis and members of the
community at large, the UC Davis University Chorus has approximately
100 members and presents concerts of both a cappella and accompanied works of considerable variety ranging from
the Baroque to the 21st century. Twice each academic year,
it joins with the UC
Davis Symphony Orchestra to perform large-scale works,
often including guest vocal soloists. A list of recently performed
works can be found by clicking on the link in the left column.
Performances are held on the Davis campus in Jackson Hall of

Founded in 2002 by Jeffrey Thomas in order to extend an invitation to alumni of the UC Davis choral programs to join the University Chorus in their inaugural performance in the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, the Alumni Chorus has evolved into an integral part of the concert seasons of the Department of Music. Works performed in recent years include the Requiems by Mozart, Brahms, and Verdi; Berlioz's Te Deum; Mahler's Second Symphony; and Orff's Carmina Burana. Meeting over the course of one long weekend per year, the reunions have brought joy to the participants, and have served as a means for alumni to reconnect with previous friends and professors. The next Alumni Chorus Reunion dates have been set.
