The Concordia Choir
Since 1920, the 72-voice choir has performed in nearly every major hall including Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center as well as numerous international tours.
The Choir's world-class quality is highlighted in a recording session with the Grammy Award-winning King’s Singers. In May 2017, the Choir toured Germany in observation of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.
The Concordia Choir is featured in the Emmy-winning Concordia Christmas Concerts, which are nationally broadcast on public television. The choir’s recordings are distributed internationally and through iTunes, making it one of the top-selling choirs in the country.
Dr. René Clausen is the third conductor in the choir’s history, beginning in 1986. He has written more than 120 commissioned works. The Kansas City Chorale recording Life and Breath: Choral Works by René Clausen won two Grammy awards in 2013.
