The University Singers, founded in 2005, is a non–auditioned mixed-voice chorus, consisting of University of Bridgeport students, as well as faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. Membership includes students from throughout the University.
The University Singers perform regularly in a variety of venues, including on-campus concerts, performances in the greater Bridgeport area, and for major University events such as the International Festival and Commencement. Upcoming performances can be seen here.
Members of the University Singers have performed with other universities at a variety of venues, including Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, and Carnegie Hall. Notable collaborations include the Greater Bridgeport Symphony, the regional premiere of the concert version of Leonard Bernstein’s Mass (with the Con Brio Choral Society and Mystic River Chorale), and the world premiere of Neely Bruce’s The Banquet (with the Hamden Symphony Orchestra). The Singers have also opened for the award-winning a cappella group VoicePlay. Since UB has long boasted one of the most international student bodies of any university in the United States, we strive to maintain a broadly multicultural repertoire while remaining rooted in standard choral literature. The group is led by an elected board of students and Dr. Frank Martignetti, the conductor and director of UB’s Music & Performing Arts Program.
Rehearsals are held late Tuesday afternoons during the academic year in the Arnold Bernhard Center. The Arnold Bernhard Center is located at the corner of University and Iranistan Avenues in the South End of Bridgeport, overlooking Seaside Park. Ample, safe, adjacent parking is available.
