We're excited to announce that all instruction and ensembles will return to Temple University facilities for Fall 2021, subject to the university's public health protocols.
The Singing Owls is a chorus comprised of Temple University students and members of the Greater Philadelphia community, and is open to all without audition. All new singers will need to be assessed for the purpose of placement within the ensemble. The primary goal of the Singing Owls is the appreciation and performance of music from diverse places, cultures, and time periods. Singers will learn and develop skills such as uniform pitch, rhythm, dynamics, breathing, posture and diction. The repertoire for this ensemble varies from semester to semester, but is selected to expose singers to the gamut of choral music, from the 16th century to today, and from across the globe.

What are the membership requirements?
Choir members should be able to match pitch and have a good ear, or have modest music-reading ability, or both. There is no audition to become a member of the choir; however, each member will be vocally assessed for the purpose of placement within the ensemble.
