In addition to the Chapel Choir, Duke’s Vespers Ensemble, composed of approximately twenty-five members, was founded in January 1987. This choir leads a Thursday evening service and has historically performed a variety of unaccompanied chamber music. This group has also toured and boasts two recordings of their own. Duke Chapel’s youngest choir is the Evensong choir, founded in the fall of 2015. This group leads a traditional service of Anglican Evensong each Sunday evening.

Collectively, these choirs provide a robust and dynamic heritage of performing excellent music in a truly remarkable space.
