The SouthArk Singers is made up of students who either volunteer or enroll in choir. They meet 2 times a week (Tuesday/Thursday) at 11:00 in the SouthArk Music Room (ADM206). The SouthArk Singers are music ambassadors for the college. On campus, the Singers provide music for events such as graduation, student recognition ceremony, Veterans' Day observance, Holiday Tree Lighting, and Outdoor Expo. But they also travel into the community to perform at local nursing homes, civic clubs, and other public functions. They sing at the Students-in-Recital, a concert featuring music students held at noon during the week in the El Dorado Conference Center, at least twice during each semester.
The SouthArk Choral Society consists of SouthArk students, staff, and administration as well as community members who love to perform high quality choral music. This group presents a concert each semester in diverse venues such as churches, on stage, and regular concert settings. Past performances have included Requiems by Durufle, Brahms, and Faure, Choral music by Leonard Bernstein and Benjamin Britten, Oratorios by Felix Mendelssohn and G.F. Handel as well as staged productions of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Mikado" and "Pirates of Penzance".
