**Student Musical Activities update on COVID-19**


We are transitioning to a new website! If you need to visit the old site, click here. 
UC Choral Ensembles, also known as UCCE, is at the heart of music at UC Berkeley. We are comprised of nine groups, and we’re based in the basement of the Cesar Chavez Student Center on Lower Sproul Plaza. We offer students many exciting learning and performance opportunities, including the development of musical and vocal skills and the exploration of a wide-variety of musical styles. There’s something for everyone in UCCE, from Cal songs, to Jazz, to Classical, and even musicals! Our groups have plenty of individual shows as well as larger shows, such as Welcome Back to A Cappella and the West Coast Showcase. If that’s not enough, many of our groups love to perform for passers-by on Sproul Plaza on a weekly basis. Click on the links below or see the “Groups” tab to learn more about our groups:

UC Choral Ensembles is a member of Student Musical Acitvities, a subsidiary of Cal Performances. SMA is a thriving center for extra-curricular music training and performance at Berkeley. Complementing and augmenting Music Department performance opportunities, SMA is run by and for students interested in choral, jazz and marching band repertoire. SMA supports students in the development of musical skills as well as experience in group and arts management.
