We are the oldest student run choir who invites women, including graduate students, from the entire Rutgers community to join us. Hybridizing a choral group with a mellow sorority, we cultivate a relaxed social atmosphere where we can enjoy singing as a group. Known for singing traditional Rutgers music, QC also sings a variety of music at their biannual concerts.
The 70's saw the beginning of QC and the development of its character. The name changed from the Rutgers Womens Chorale to the Rutgers Queens Chorale.
1972: Women are admitted to Rutgers College.
The 80's saw the beginning of one of our favorite traditions, the cows and calves. Every new member of the choir, rookie, is a calf, and each gets her own cow, an older, wiser member of the group.
1986: Francis Slade directs QC for one year.
1995: Budget cuts hit QC. With the specialization of Mason Gross School of the Arts, the Rutgers Queens Chorale is de funded. Other drawbacks for QC from the MGSA changes were that students could no longer receive credit for participating in QC and QC lost rehearsal space in McKinny Hall.
2002: Sarah Thiffault becomes director of QC for one year.
