Rowan’s Concert Choir’s members are primarily students studying vocal performance, education, and music, but also includes select non-music majors. The focus of this ensemble centers on artistic music making where vocal technique is combined with performance. The group is very active and passionate as ambassadors for choral music throughout the region and tours internationally every other year.

The Rowan University Concert Choir explores identical text settings composed hundreds of years apart. Works include everything from medieval songs to compositions by Ēriks Ešenvalds, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Jake Runestad, Josquin des Prez, and Tomás Luis de Victoria. ChildrenSong of New Jersey, founded and directed by Polly Murray, presents a piece by Rowan graduate Michael John Trotta, among other works. The concert concludes with selections performed by the combined choirs. 

ChildrenSong is a choral music education and performance program based in Haddonfield. Established in 2000, the program serves 75 children in three choirs between the ages of 8 and 18 from Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester counties. The organization provides music instruction with the goal of attaining the highest level of artistic excellence and choral music performance. The Chorus endeavors to enrich the lives of children from all religious, racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds. A special effort is made to serve children who have limited opportunities for such experiences due to the circumstances of their schooling.
