Choir

We are a group of students and alumni from Universidad Panamericana, Guadalajara Campus, with a common taste for music, seeking personal development through musical activities. 

 

Mission: To offer the university community an activity where they can find vocal and musical training, fun, friendship, companionship with other members of the choir, as well as the chance to receive a partial discount on tuition (covering certain minimum requirements). To share choral music within and without the university community, by taking it to different stages: religious ceremonies, theater presentations, and others.  To foster personal growth and the development of artistic-cultural sensitivity among the university community and society in general.

 

Vision: To be a university choral group which is distinguished by being person-centered. To trace our objectives from this center.

 

General Objective: To offer the university community a space for artistic-musical formation which complements their human, spritual, and professional growth, as well as to collaborate in the transmission of this art.

 

Our History:  The choir began as a complement to the academic and cultural formation of our students. In April of 1993, it was founded under the stewardship of Prof. Engelberto Aguilar Macías, who was director of the choir until February, 2014. The current director is Omar Ornelas Arredondo.
