The Hendrix College Choir, conducted by Dr. Andrew Morgan, is the premiere choral ensemble at Hendrix. Performing repertoire from a broad range of styles, musical traditions, and time periods, the Choir provides both a challenging and rewarding musical experience to its participants, who then have the privilege of sharing this wonderful music with the Hendrix community and beyond. 

The group rehearses 3 times weekly (M, T, Th, 4:10-5:30pm). Participation in the ensemble is by audition only. Auditions are by appointment and are held at the beginning of each semester, and at the end of the spring semester for the following school year. For more information about the audition process or about the choir, please visit our FAQ page.

The Choir performs several times throughout the year. In the Fall, performances include Fall Family Weekend and the Odyssey Medal Convocation. At the end of the semester, the choir presents the Candlelight Carol Service four times during the first week of December. Following final exams, the choir tours to regional United Methodist Churches in Arkansas and neighboring states. Recent Candlelight performances have been held at Central United Methodist Church in Fayetteville, AR, and at St. James United Methodist Church in Little Rock. This year the choir will perform at Germantown United Methodist Church in Germantown, TN, and Asbury United Methodist Church in Little Rock.
