Augustana Choral Program: The Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta, located in Camrose, AB, is the proud home of four unique choral ensembles, three of which are composed of students and community members from as far away as Edberg and Edmonton.  Through the exploration of music from a variety of times and places, these choirs work to develop a broad sense of cultural awareness and cultivate an appreciation for the richness of the choral art. In addition, strong emphasis is placed on the development of the vocal instrument and gaining an understanding of foundational musical concepts.  Three of these choirs will participate in this concert:

Sangkor (pronounced sahng-kohr), is the Norwegian word for "song choir".  This group explores the depth and beauty of the vast treble-choir tradition.  

Mannskor draws from the bountiful lower-voice choral tradition to find comradery, joy, and often some silliness, in the rehearsal and performance process. 

Both of these ensembles are non-auditioned and open to students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the community.

The Augustana Choir is the auditioned chamber choir on the Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta. This choir performs a diverse range of a cappella choral music, from Renaissance to the latest in contemporary choral compositions.  In keeping with the liberal-arts tradition of the Augustana campus, singers in the choir come from all disciplines and departments, creating a rich milieu for musical exploration and growth.  TAC is led by Dr. John Wiebe, Director of Music at the Augustana Campus.  The choir tours annually across Alberta and Western Canada, with regular international tours, including Austria and Hungary in May of 2023.  TAC has performed at provincial and national choral conferences and in fall 2024 released its latest CD recording, Distracted by Beauty.
