Vassar Madrigal Singers, directed by Drew Minter, is a select ensemble of singers whose musical and vocal skills are already significantly developed. To audition, singers in their freshman or sophomore years must first be a member of one of the two larger choirs, the Vassar College Choir or the Vassar Women’s Chorus. As the group meets only twice per week, a high level of commitment is required. Most of the members are given regular solo opportunities in the ensemble’s concerts. While the group performs a wide-ranging repertoire, it is centered in the early music (medieval through Baroque) and contemporary repertoires. Special performances have included Handel’s Messiah (2005) and Bach’s St. John Passion (2007), both with Baroque period orchestras.
