The choirs of the Joint Music Program of Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer and Scripps colleges performing April 15 are the Claremont Concert Choir and the Claremont Treble Singers. Both are auditioned ensembles comprised primarily of students of the colleges. The Joint Music Program choirs were established with the Concert Choir in 1963 as a combination of the Scripps College Glee Club and the then Claremont Men’s College Stag Chorus. The Concert Choir has performed with the Atlanta Symphony, the Santa Monica Symphony, the Utah Symphony, the Orange County Symphony and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, as well as its regular series with the Claremont Concert Orchestra. The Treble Singers is a new offering of the Joint Music Program this year. The choirs are members of the Pacific Southwest Intercollegiate Choral Association.
