The group, made up primarily of freshmen, is BJU’s largest choral organization. In addition to presenting two concerts a year, the choir regularly performs at the annual BJU Christmas Lighting Ceremony and has participated in the Upstate Intercollegiate Choral Invitational Festival in South Carolina. Under the direction of Dr. Eliezer Yanson Jr., the University Singers has performed at the South Carolina American Choral Directors Association state conference.
