The Hendrix College Choir is open to all Hendrix students by audition. Normally 45-50 students participate in the ensemble each semester. The Choir is an active performance group that rehearses four hours weekly.   For more information about the audition process or about the choir, please visit our FAQ page.

The Choir performs throughout the year. In the fall, we sing for Fall Family Weekend and for Founders Day. At the end of the semester, we present the traditional Candlelight Carol Service four times on campus before touring the service throughout Arkansas and the surrounding states. In December 2011, we celebrated the forty-seventh anniversary of Candlelight and took it on tour to Highland Park United Methodist Church, Dallas, TX and St. Paul United Methodist Church, Little Rock. Plans for Candlelight 2012 include performances in Nashville, TN, and North Little Rock.
