The University Singers, Washington & Lee


The University Singers, the premiere choral ensemble at Washington and Lee University, continues to be recognized as one of the finest a cappella choirs in the region. Under the direction of award-winning conductor Shane M. Lynch, the University Singers tour nationally or internationally every year, performing a wide variety of literature across the globe while serving as artistic ambassadors for W&L in concert series, music festivals, competitions and conventions. The University Singers have been recognized for their excellence in performance by the American Choral Directors Association, the Virginia Music Educators Association, and in featured solo choir programs at major venues such as Carnegie Hall, the National Cathedral, and the Academy of Music. As an internationally competitive choir, the University Singers have received numerous festival/competition invitations, placements, and awards, including from the City of Derry International Choir Festival (first American choir ever to compete in Derry), the Cork International Choir Festival, and the International Choral Competition Gallus-Maribor in Slovenia.

At W&L, the University Singers are the centerpiece of the choral campus life, performing in concerts and convocations while regularly hosting residencies, performing world debuts of works by the world’s top composers, including Ēriks Ešenvalds, Melissa Dunphy, Rosephanye Powell, Stacey V. Gibbs, Santiago Veros, and René Clausen. Student members of the University Singers represent a wide cross-section of the programs offered at the school, routinely representing over 30 of the 36 undergraduate major concentrations and the law school. Membership in the University Singers is chosen by a competitive audition process each spring. Visit wlu.edu/music for more information. Follow the ensemble via WLUSingers on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and other social media platforms.
