The Freed-Hardeman University Chorale
was formed in 2004 and is a mixed ensemble of musicians who are both music major and non-music major students. The University Chorale specializes in sacred unaccompanied selections, but is not limited to that repertoire. The director, Dr. Gary McKnight, is dedicated to the study and performance of the finest choral literature of all music eras, as well as to developing the talents of each of the group’s members. Auditions for new members are held at the beginning the fall semester. The University Chorale rehearses daily and maintains an active concert and touring schedule. The Chorale makes extended bus tours, and every other summer many of its members, along with members of the University Singers, participate in a campaign in which the group travels overseas, presenting concerts arranged by local churches and assisting with mission efforts.

is a mixed ensemble of musicians who are both music major and non-music major students. Students selected by audition at the beginning of the academic year participate the entire year. Students who were unable to participate the first semester and transfer students are given the opportunity to audition and participate in the spring semester. The University Singers sing a variety of music covering a wide range of periods and styles. The Singers meet three days a week throughout the semester. Performances range from local appearances to campus performances, to touring to the Collegiate Choral Festival. The University Singers are conducted by Stephen Foster.
