This fall, opportunites abound for the musically inclined!

USCB University Chorus

The University of South Carolina Beaufort is searching for Lowcountry voices to form its brand-new University Chorus. The chorus class will meet on Wednesday’s from 6:30pm to 9:00pm on USCB’s historic downtown Beaufort campus.
     Who should register?
Students as well as members of the community who love to sing are encouraged to audition for the class, also known as BMUS 129. Instruction will emphasize vocal jazz and other genres. Musical experience and the ability to read music are not prerequisites.
    “This course will be a wonderful opportunity for students of all ages experience the magic of vocal harmony,” says Vic Varner, adjunct professor of Music at USCB.
  The choir will perform locally at University and community events, and may participate in choral tours.
    What’s in it for me?
The course will provide one hour of college credit and guarantees a fun time for all who take part. Singers, instrumentalists and students from all majors are encouraged to participate.  All members of the new ensemble will learn more about reading music, gain performance experience, and enhance their vocal technique.
    About the University Chorus Director, Vic Varner
Varner has been a choral director and performer for 28 years, having built 4 award-winning high school choirs, and directed church choirs throughout the state.
