Saba, The JRU Chorale is the University's premiere mixed choral ensemble composed of select group of students and alumni representing the different colleges and faculties of the Jose Rizal University.

Students we are, we fulfill our dreams to sing melodious harmonies for the purpose of enriching God's wonderful gift to us all: our voices. What we lack in wealth, we redeem it in friendship, musicality and apt discipline in attaining virtuosity in our own standards; standards that are transient, as yet we try to broaden our experience and knowledge with the choral world. We strive hard to hone our craft through the principles of pragmatism. Despite our differences, we settle constantly to a common ground where understanding is imperative and available. We stick to the rules of friendship and excellence.

The chorale will remain steadfast and true to its commitment to excellence.

Musica brevis Vevita Longga!
