Choir

The College Choir is one of two music ensembles at Columbia State Community College.

Under the direction of Associate Professor of Music Emily Gaskill, the mixed men's and women's choir performs at a variety of events each semester including the school's end of semester music program as well as Columbia State sporting events. The choir has also sung at the Tennessee Music Educator's Conference, the annual Maury County Choral Festival and at local nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Attention students: You do NOT have to be a music major in order to join the choir!

Any current student at Columbia State can sign up for choir (MUS 1410 in the college catalog). The student receives one hour elective credit for college choir; four semester hours are required for music majors with a vocal emphasis.

An audition is NOT required but singing experience is preferred.


Requirements to receive an A for the course include attending all rehearsals and performances. The choir rehearses on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:30 to 1:50 p.m. on the Columbia Campus, Hickman building, room 145.

Chamber Ensemble
The Chamber Ensemble is an audition group and is part of the larger Columbia State Choir. The Chamber Ensemble meets the last few minutes of regular choral rehearsal time and learns more challenging music. The Chamber Ensemble occasionally participates in a few additional choral performances.

A Great Place To Start. Invest in Columbia State.
