Composed of music majors and non-majors alike, this inventive mixed choral ensemble explores choral music with improvisation, a wide array of literature and looking past the sheet music to find the deeper meaning and role of the music.
Founded: Established in 1931, the Augustana Choir is the premier choral ensemble at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois. Augustana College was founded by Swedish settlers in 1860 and trumpets his heritage and roots in the liberal arts curriculum.
Music/Artistic Director: Dr. Jon Hurty
