The Handles Messiah, Belhaven Concert ChoirThe Choral Arts are alive at Belhaven University! We are seeking a choral experience at Belhaven University that is unparalleled in its artistic excellence, uncompromising in its Christian ideals, and unsurpassed in rich relationships. Scholarships are available at all levels of choral participation as well as for solo performance. Audition early for best chances at scholarships.

If you have never participated in a choir before, you are one of the people we most want to audition. Our Concert Choir is designed to open the door for beginners to the joy of choral music making. We believe the God has endowed ordinary people with the gift of singing as a normal part of being human. Don't worry, there are very talented Section Leaders that will encourage and lead you as you "learn the ropes" of choral singing. The audition is brief and is painless. Don't count yourself out without even trying. We want you to have a life changing experience in the Concert Choir.

The Belhaven choirs have performed with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra.

Belhaven ChoirsFor more advanced singers, we offer the Belhaven Chorale. This group forms the backbone of the Concert Choir and provides qualified performers unique opportunities befitting their advanced skills. The Belhaven Chorale is made up of 16-24 voices. Participants are the Section Leaders of the Concert Choir. Repertoire is extremely varied. This group will represent Belhaven University in schools, churches, and other special gatherings.
