Paws&ListenThe University of Kentucky Paws and Listen are an a cappella singing group of 16 women auditioned from the Women's Choir.  They perform pop music as well as a mix of doo-wop, vocal jazz, and show tunes. The ensemble is coached by undergraduate music education majors and advised by Dr. Lori Hetzel, Associate Director of Choirs/Choral Music Education. This group is highly esteemed both on and off campus. They perform for numerous prestigious events throughout the year and are often featured at high profile events at the home of the UK President.

The group consists of both music majors and majors from across many disciplines. The women must be academically astute as they also participate in one or more of the other choral ensembles at the University.
