Choral/Vocal Ensembles

Chamber Chorale

The Chamber Chorale is a group of 30-40 singers that performs primarily Classical literature, often with orchestra. Directed by Evan Norberg, the Chamber Chorale tours every year and performs their own concerts in Fall and Spring quarters. During the Winter quarter, chorale members are the opera chorus for the Opera Workshop productions.

Shoreline Singers

The Shoreline Singers is a classical ensemble made up of students with past choir experience. Styles range from renaissance to contemporary music, jazz, spirituals, and pop. Students continue their education with top notch voice instructors here at Shoreline Community College and explore advanced skills related to tone, resonance, blend, and balance while learning about the various styles.

All new and returning students interested in joining Shoreline Singers must audition. Interested students should either download the audition packet or pick one up in the lobby in Music Building 800. For more information, please contact Choir Director, Evan Norberg, at

Small Vocal Ensemble

In the Small Vocal Ensembles Class, intermediate and advanced voice students are given an overview of available vocal ensemble literature and its historical context, then are assigned one or two pieces to be performed late in the quarter. During Fall quarter, the main concentration is opera; winter, “legit” music theater and operetta; spring, ensemble song literature by classical composers. More advanced students may choose to concentrate on one or two mediums throughout the year. Directed by Dr. Charles Enlow.
