The word ‘choir’ originated from the Greek word ‘Choros’ which means a combination of singers where various characteristics of voices are harmonized.
Almost of all of our choirs present songs in a harmony that consists of four parts; soprano (high-pitch female voice), alto (low-pitch female voice), tenor (high-pitch male voice), and bass (low-pitch male voice). Nevertheless, choir pieces could also be written or arranged into more than the aforementioned four parts. Choir pieces could be composed with or without instruments accompaniment. The pieces without instrument are commonly known as acappella.
Two world-renown composers who composed choir pieces are Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederick Handel from German. Bach’s composition, St. Matthew Passion (1729) and Handel’s oratorio, Messiah (1742), are the compositions that are often performed in various countries. In almost all of choir’s music composition by Bach and Handel, either orchestra or solo accompaniments play important parts in every performance.
Under the guidance from Tutu Sukendro, UPH Choir established since 2005 and now has become the ‘University Choir’ that represent UPH in various official events, both internal and external.
The presence of UPH Choir is to become a facility for the students to develop their talents and to pursue achievements together with its members.
