MemChurch Documentary: “The Chorus Line,” an inside look at Harvard University Choir auditions

Harvard University is an institution cultivated, in part, on the foundation of long-standing traditions that inhabit nearly every corner of the institution. The Harvard University Choir is one of those traditions. For the past 189 years, the student choir has provided the musical backdrop to services at Harvard Memorial Church.  

This film, shot during the span of the 2016-2017 Fall Term, follows Choirmaster Edward Elwyn Jones and his staff as they pick though the procession of talented students auditioning for 16 open parts in the 50-member choir. Jeffrey Blackwell/Harvard Memorial Church Communications
