New VUMC Choir call for singers



The Office for Diversity Affairs and Vanderbilt University Medical Center Human Resources are creating a choir to perform at various VUMC events and are seeking employees who enjoy singing. The group is looking for singers of all abilities, and auditions are not required. The choir is open to all VUMC staff, faculty, students and residents. The only requirement — that you love to sing. The choir will perform all types of music, from Gospel to contemporary. 

“A VUMC community choir that includes employees, doctors, med students, nurses, nursing students and residents is another opportunity to integrate diversity and inclusion intentionality into the fabric of our culture. When you build a ‘House of Diversity and Inclusion Intentionality,’ you build it brick by brick. This choir is one of the many bricks needed and will bring us all together in glorious song,” said André L. Churchwell, M.D., chief diversity officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center. 

“Nothing establishes community spirit and connections amongst people of diverse backgrounds in a lasting and profound manner like a large, robust melodious choir. One of the choir’s benefits is that it will bring the ‘healing’ power of music to our medical center, to our patients and families and to ourselves.”

If you are interested in joining the choir, email your name and contact information to Regina Hockett.

P.S. The group is also taking suggestions for the choir’s name and for a choir director. Send ideas to Regina Hockett.
