Unique Aspects of Our Choir Program
  • Well-Rounded Involvement: Students who participate in choir at Concordia almost always are involved in multiple different activities and sports.  Choir students are currently also involved in every sport at Concordia as well as theater, academic team, student council, and numerous other clubs and organizations.
  • State Choir Trip: Each spring, the Concert Choir takes a weekend trip to Waco/Austin/San Antonio to participate in the TAPPS State Vocal Competition.  The weekend trip includes the competition in Waco on Saturday, worship at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Austin on Sunday morning, and then a free day at Six Flags in San Antonio on Sunday.
  • Singing Praises to God:Choir gives each and every student involved a chance to first and foremost give thanks and praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by witnessing to others through the gift of singing.  The ability to spread the Word of God through choral music is powerful and can impact lives on every level.
