The University of North Texas Grand Chorus, comprised of more than 150 singers drawn from the A Cappella Choir, Concert Choir and University Singers as well as other interested individuals, partners with the UNT Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony, as well as other regional orchestras, to present major oratorio repertoire.

Performances of Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, Britten’s War Requiem, and a commercial recording of the wind symphony arrangement of Orff’s Carmina Burana are but a few of the unforgettable experiences afforded to members of this ensemble.
