Choirs

The New Mexico State University Choirs provide students with opportunities in and out of the classroom to grow as singers and members of a larger community. Each ensemble varies in time commitment and is open to university students from all academic majors. Whether you are a beginning singer or one with a wealth of experience, there is a choir at NMSU for you! If you have any questions, contact Dr. Jake Taylor, Director of Choral Studies, at taylorjc@nmsu.edu.
