The Cello Choir, offered in spring semesters, explores the ever-growing repertoire for cello trios and cello quartets. This provides a great way to learn chamber music skills in an ensemble in which everyone can learn and play every part, and in which considerable attention can be focused on the particulars of cello technique.
UW-Whitewater's premier student string quartet is the Chancellor's Quartet, which performs for many of the formal events of the university. The ensemble also makes recruiting trips into area schools on behalf of the music department. The members of the quartet receive scholarships and are coached by members of the string faculty.
Eclectic String Quartet
UW-W has a long tradition of producing string students who are highly adept at performing non-classical repertoire. Four such students frequently comprise a resident string quartet called the Eclectic String Quartet. This ensemble performs frequently, including in area schools.
