The SCSU choral program continues to be one of St. Cloud State’s most treasured and prestigious activities where you will find:

  • Caring people who will support and uplift you –people who will become your lifelong friends!
  • A wide variety of music performed at the highest caliber.
  • Friendly and supportive teachers who will care for your personal and musical growth.

We want YOU to become a part of this long-standing tradition!

DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY to form meaningful lifelong relationships in an environment that is supportive, fun, and rewarding.

All singers are encouraged to sing a "no-stress" placement hearing so we can find the best choir for you. You needn't prepare anything, and everyone will be placed in an ensemble, barring scheduling conflicts - there literally is a place for YOU! We look forward to hearing you!

The Choirs of St. Cloud State University are committed to your personal growth as a creative, dynamic musician through refined performances of the finest choral repertoire.

The wide range of choral ensembles offers you a choir that is appropriate to your individual development.  Whether you are an aspiring music professional or simply a person who loves to sing, we have a choir for you!

Current choir members represent nearly all academic disciplines and majors.  In fact, most of the singers are majoring in areas other than music, and nearly all are undergraduates.
