In honor of Boys Town’s 100th Anniversary, The University Singers will present a concert celebrating Boys Town’s rich history of choral music. The concert will include sacred works performed by the Boys Town Choir during their touring years in the 1940s through 70s, and will feature Faure’s Requiem. The performance will take place in Boys Town’s own beautiful Dowd Chapel.

University Singers, the University of Nebraska’s premiere and historic flagship choral ensemble, presents the finest and most versatile choral singers in the entire University. While many of the choir’s singers are music majors, students from throughout the University are encouraged to audition and participate.

This ensemble performs music from the thirteenth century through the present, including works written especially for it. University Singers has performed repeatedly for state conventions of the Nebraska Choral Directors Association and the Nebraska Music Educators Association, and at regional and national venues including the North Central Division Conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, regional and national meetings of the Music Educators National Conference, and regional ACDA conventions.
