The University of Rio Grande's Grande Chorale is one of the premiere musical ensembles on campus. The group performs primarily vocal jazz, with 8 - 12 vocalists and the Rio Combo of bass, drums, and piano led by Adjunct Piano Professor Scott Michal. The Grande Chorale frequently tours within and outside of the state of Ohio, and performs for collegiate events. In 2006 the group completed a tour of England and Wales. Auditions for new members occur in the late spring and early fall of each school year.
