Founded in 1976, the Cadet Chorale is the official touring choir for The Citadel. Members are selected by competitive audition usually in the fall of their freshman year. We perform music of all types, including patriotic, sacred, popular, and classical music, as well as novelty and show tunes. We have performed for audiences all over the East Coast including the Charlotte Hornets, The Detroit Tigers, The Miss USA Pageant, Good Morning America on ABC, former president Ronald Reagan, General Norman Schwarzkopf, General Colin Powell, former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev, Ted Turner, and the U.S. Army Reserve Command in Las Vegas. The Chorale is under the direction of Mrs. Nancy Lefter, Director of Choral Music at The Citadel and accompanied by Col. Mark Bebensee, Associate Provost for Academic Affairs.
