Prospective Students

The Glee Club welcomes the opportunity for prospective students to sing with us on their visit to campus! If you are interested in becoming a member of a choral ensemble on campus or are just curious what the Glee Club is all about, please fill out the form below to let us know when you plan on visiting campus. We will get back to you with opportunities on that day to sing with the group and to meet with or sing for director Gabriel Crouch. We look forward to meeting you!

The Glee Club is happy to be your portal to vocal music at Princeton and would like to use this page to provide you with information and answers to some frequently asked questions about the vocal opportunities, choral and solo, Princeton University Department of Music has to offer.

Princeton University Department of Music has two main choral ensembles: the concert choir, known as the Glee Club, of around 70 voices; and a smaller chamber choir of around 20 voices. 

In addition to choral ensembles, Princeton University Department of Music offers abundant solo opportunities throughout the year. Every spring, singers have the opportunity to audition for MUS 214, a vocal performance class, which coaches students in a wide variety of styles, from opera to lieder, with a final performance at the end of the semester. A fully staged opera is performed every other year. Exceptional students will also have the opportunity to participate in masterclasses and competitions held throughout the year.

Princeton University Department of Music offers voice lessons with the following teachers: 

Ron Cappon
Martha Elliott
Rochelle Ellis
David Kellett
Sarah Pelletier
Barbara Rearick

Auditions for private study will be held at the beginning of the academic year and accepted students will be placed in a studio depending on availability. Students may and are encouraged to contact a teacher he or she is interested in prior to the start of the academic year for a trial lesson as switching studios once placed is frowned upon. Should the student have a preferred studio, he or she can request a certain teacher but is not guaranteed a spot due to limited availability.
