The Cheyney University Concert Choir is the official choral ensemble for the University. They perform for major on-campus functions as well as travel to neighboring churches and businesses to spread good cheer through music. The choir’s repertoire spans music of over 400 years from early composers such as Thomas Tallis and John Wilbye to living composers such as Roland Carter and Raymond Wise. The choir performs music of various choral genres including standard choral repertoire as well as Negro spirituals. Currently, the choir is under the direction of Marques L. A. Garrett and accompanied by Toni Caldwell-Hall.
