The CSU Northridge's Women's Chorale is an auditioned ensemble of university students. The Chorale meets twice each week and performs a wide variety of music, from medieval to modern experimental music, Western art music and works from the evolving multicultural canon.
Over the past four years, students have learned to sing in several languages in addition to English: Latin; Spanish, Portuguese; German, French, Italian; Czech; Hebrew; Shona, Zwahili; Mandarin.
While presenting a performance each semester at the University, the Women's Chorale has also performed for local public schools, the California Music Educators Conference, and as guest choir for the San Fernando Valley Symphony Orchestra's performances of Gustav Holst's The Planets and Debussy's Nocturnes.
The Women's Chorale performed in China in June 2007, where they were hosted by Shanghai Normal University, and then continued on a cultural tour of Wuxi, Suzhou, Hangzhou, and Beijing.
