Vocal and Choral Studies

Opera Workshop

The PSU Opera Theatre program produces two productions annually, with at least one that is fully staged with orchestral accompaniment.  Repertoire for the productions is chosen from the opera, operetta and musical theatre canons which range from traditional operas by Mozart to cabaret style evenings devoted to the works of American musical theatre composers.  Visit the PSU Opera Theatre page.

Choral Opportunities

Pittsburg State has a long and proud tradition of excellence in the area of vocal music.  The PSU Choirs have been featured on a number of occasions at the state conventions of the Kansas Music Educators Association, and they also maintain an active schedule of on-campus performances and annual touring throughout the region.

The central ensemble for these activities is the 120-member University Choir, which is open to all PSU students. Smaller ensemble experiences are also available via the PSU Chorale and Jazz Choir (by audition), and through activities such as Women’s Choir, Men’sChoir, Lab Choir, and other ad hoc ensembles.

Scholarship Assistance

Scholarship assistance is offered to PSU students at all levels of involvement, from music majors to music minors and non-major participants.  Scholarships are awarded to applicants based upon an interview and audition, normally held during the year preceding entry to the university.
