Augustana is proud of its exceptional choir programs and rich choral history. From our auditioned chamber choir, The Augustana Choir, to our three student-community groups, our ensembles have provided exceptional learning and performance experiences since the early 1900s.


Choral music at Augustana is an exciting and integral part of our music program and our university community. Through the performance of quality, engaging and relevant music, our four performing ensembles provide a variety of fulfilling choral experiences: The Augustana Choir - our mixed-voice auditioned chamber choir; Sangkor - our student and community treble voice choir; Mannskor - our student and community changed voice choir; and SingAble - our university and community inclusion choir.

Our history of singing upholds a tradition of excellence that has enriched the lives of participants and audiences since the beginning of the twentieth century. Studies in choral music education are available at Augustana through comprehensive conducting, literature, and choral techniques courses. Our performance tradition is enhanced by the Augustana Chapel, a visually and acoustically beautiful space, housed in the Faith & Life Center.
