Opportunities in Music

Lyon College students enjoy a range of opportunities to express and explore their love of both vocal and instrumental music.

The Lyon College Concert Chorale is open to any interested student who passes a brief audition. The Choir performs a wide variety of literature, ranging from larger choral-orchestral works to folk songs and spirituals. The Concert Chorale presents several on-campus performances each year, including two large-scale concerts, as well as the annual Christmastime Festival of Carols service. Students involved in instrumental ensembles experience travel and enrichment through performance. All band members are an integral part of the college community supporting athletics, special events, and promoting Lyon College throughout the state, region, and nation.

The Lyon College Gospel Choir is a vocal ensemble open to students and community members regardless of their faith. The ensemble performs a variety of song forms drawn from the African American religious tradition, including traditional and contemporary gospel, anthems, and spirituals. The choir is devoted to using its art not only to entertain but also to worship.
