The University Singers have a long and distinguished reputation as one of the finest collegiate vocal ensembles in the United States.

They have also made appearances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Zubin Mehta and Carlo Maria Giulini, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Carl St.Clair and the Boston Pops Orchestra under the baton of Keith Lockhart.

The Chamber Choir of Cal State Fullerton is a select chamber ensemble. In recent years, the ensemble has become nationally recognized as a premier collegiate vocal ensemble.

The group has joined with the University Singers performing with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and the Pacific Symphony Orchestra among others. Recently, they have toured to Italy, Germany and Spain.

John Alexander has served as director of the University Singers since 1994 as well as the Chamber Choir. His achievements as a masterful interpreter of the musical score have been demonstrated in his 28-year history as artistic director and conductor one of America’s major professional choirs, the Pacific Chorale of Southern California.
