University of Saskatchewan Greystone Singers

 

The Greystone Singers are a mixed-voice choir open by audition to all University of Saskatchewan students who love singing and enjoy learning a challenging and varied repertoire. Since 1958, when they were first organized, well over fourteen hundred young men and women have sung with this award-winning ensemble. This year's choir consists of forty students from the Colleges of Arts and Science, Education, Engineering, and Kinesiology, as well as majors in the Department of Music.
