DELAWARE CHORAL SCHOLARS INTERNATIONAL TOURING CHOIR: A project to promote choral artistry in the context of global immersion.
The Delaware Choral Scholars project was launched in 2014 as a small conducting symposium held in the South of France. Over the next six years, the program attracted hundreds of singers from all over the country seeking opportunities to sing in a high-caliber choir while experiencing the beauty and grandeur of one of the world’s most beautiful places. With the post-pandemic return of global travel, the 2022 symposium brought the choir back to the world stage in Croatia, with future endeavors on the drawing board for Asia, the UK, and Eastern Europe. While the group consists mainly of students and alumni associated with the University of Delaware, most projects are open to any accomplished singer who possesses an unbridled passion for choral singing along with an insatiable curiosity for experiencing other peoples and cultures firsthand.

The Delaware Choral Scholars were formerly known as the Delaware Choral Academy. Singers and conductors from around the world came to the South of France to perform large and small works, experience music in stunning and ancient places, and immerse themselves in culture.
The project in France ran from 2014 to 2019 through the Delaware Choral Academy. DCA came back in 2022 as the Delaware Choral Scholars, with the mission of bringing singers to places all around the world.
