About the Ensemble

The Choir of the West is composed of undergraduate majors from a wide variety of academic disciplines. The choir rehearses four days each week, ninety minutes per day. The choir performs several concerts each year, including shared concerts with other PLU ensembles, the annual series of Christmas concerts, campus ministry events, and campus celebratory events. Choir of the West tours annually, and every four years travels abroad. The choir has toured Scandinavia, China, Japan and throughout Europe, most recently to Bulgaria, Romania and Hungary in the summer of 2007, and to France and Germany in 2011. The choir has been selected on numerous occasions to perform for regional and national conferences of the American Choral Directors Association—including a triumphant appearance at the 2013 ACDA National Conference—and National Association for Music Education. In addition, the Choir of the West received two gold and one silver certificate in competition with choirs from several countries at the 2011 Harmonie Festival, held in Lindenholzhausen, Germany. "Phoenix," a compact disc released by the Choir of the West in 2010, was awarded second place in the college/university division of the American Prize Competition.
