Our vocalists come from all walks of life and academic backgrounds. Many participate in multiple ensembles respective to their schedules and their career interests. Here's what makes each ensemble distinct:

Choral Union

Choral Union is an ensemble that truly lives up to its name. Bringing together all constituencies of our university community, this choir welcomes students of all majors, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and neighbors. We sing a wide variety of repertoire and frequently join with other JU ensembles to present major works. 


Infinitus is a choral collective that has no single artistic director but makes both artistic and executive decisions through conversation and consensus. Members include student singers, conductors, and composers who also manage behind-the-scenes elements including publicity, repertoire selection, outreach projects, logistics, and more.   

The RiverTones

The RiverTones is a highly auditioned ensemble that specializes in vocal jazz, pop, and contemporary a cappella music. In addition to their signature annual events, the Vocal Jazz Festival and SpringSing, they perform frequently across our city and region.

The University Singers

The Jacksonville University Singers perform an eclectic and challenging repertoire spanning the centuries and the globe including Renaissance polyphony, Baroque and Classical masterworks, folksongs, music theatre, opera and new music by living composers. They regularly perform on tour, internationally, and for a variety of conferences.  

Calling All Tenors and BassesAnnual TeBa Day Festival!

Join us on April 4, 2024 in Terry Concert Hall to celebrate the power and artistry of lower voices.  Tenors and Basses in grades 6-12 are welcome to participate in a one-day festival including mass choir rehearsals, solo masterclasses, and a fabulous performance.  Repertoire for the day will include selections from Carl Orff's Carmina Burana and a Barbershop collaboration with The Big Orange Chorus.  No advanced preparation is required; we will learn everything the day of the performance!  Thanks to a generous grant from PNC Bank, participation costs only $5 per student.
