The Boston University Symphonic Chorus is an auditioned ensemble open to University students, faculty, staff and friends. The chorus program is guided by the principle of deeply involving students and members of the University community in the study and performance of major choral- orchestral works. Most concerts take place in Symphony Hall in Boston. Recent works performed have included Britten War Requiem, Argento Cenotaph, Shostakovich Symphony #13 (Babi Yar), Mozart Mass in C Minor, Haydn Die Schoepfung and Mendelssohn Elijah. The chorus and the Boston University Symphony Orchestra, conductor David Hoose, collaborate on a biannual basis.
