The Princeton University Chapel Choir, composed of approximately 60 Princeton undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty members, sings at Sunday morning services and official university functions in the Princeton University Chapel, as well as performing their own concerts every semester. They also sing at various other services held by the Office of Religious Life, including a yearly interfaith peace service and monthly jazz vespers. Every Advent season, they organize a Messiah sing for the community. It is the only singing group on campus whose members are paid ($8.60/hr). In recent years, the choir has performed internationally, including tours to Prague, Italy, and Spain.

The chapel choir performs pieces by traditional composers such as Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Rachmaninoff, as well as modern works by Bob Chilcott, Ola Gjeilo, Eric Whitacre, James Whitbourn, and Bobby McFerrin, and has been conducted by Penna Rose since 1992.
