PACIFIC CHORAL ENSEMBLES The Pacific Choral Ensembles have had a long and distinguished tradition with the first a cappella choir in the West established in 1916. The Pacific Choral Ensembles are a rich and vital component of the Conservatory of Music and University of the Pacific’s life. They are a platform for the fundamentals of ensemble collaboration, musicianship and musicality, providing an opportunity to learn a myriad of styles and genres while singing together. Membership into the choral ensembles is open by audition to any University of the Pacific student of any major at the beginning of each semester. PACIFIC SINGERS The Pacific Singers are a select mixed-voice chamber choir that collaborates with the University Chorus each semester for two choral concerts. Other collaborations include with the University Symphony Orchestra and the Stockton Symphony in performance of major choral and orchestral works. In October 2018, the Pacific Singers, alongside the University Chorus and the Delta Choirs, collaborated with the University of the Pacific Percussion Ensemble in Gene Koshinski’s Concerto for Marimba and Choir. In November 2018, the ensemble made a successful concert tour to Santa Cruz and Aptos area giving six performances and collaborating with various high school and community college choirs. Throughout the academic year, the ensemble performs at major University events such as University of the Pacific’s commencement ceremony and Holiday Roar Luncheon, and Regent’s dinner parties. UNIVERSITY CHORUS University Chorus is a large mixed chorus open to any student in the University by audition. It combines with the other choirs for two performances each semester and performs in both a cappella and choral-orchestral works in a wide variety of genres. This past October, the Pacific Singers, alongside the University Chorus and the Delta Choirs, collaborated with the University of the Pacific Percussion Ensemble in Gene Koshinski’s Concerto for Marimba and Choir.

PHI MU ALPHA SINFONIA AT PACIFIC Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia is the world’s oldest and largest national fraternal society in music. Sinfonia was born in1898 at the New England Conservatory, Boston, when a group of thirteen young men under the guidance of Ossian Everett Mills met “to consider the social life of the young men students of that institution [and] to devise ways and means by which it might be improved.” With the admission of a group of men at the Broad Street Conservatory, Philadelphia, Sinfonia became a national fraternity in 1900. For over a century, Sinfonians in nearly every field of study and professional endeavor have transformed music in America. The opportunity of becoming a Sinfonian is offered to men who, through their love for music, can assist in the fulfillment of the Fraternity’s Object and ideals either by adopting music as a profession or by working to advance the cause of music in America.
