Long recognized as one of the preeminent a cappella choral ensembles, the Augustana Choir is noted for the honesty of its presentation and its recognition of the importance of maintaining Lutheran choral traditions. Their critically acclaimed reputation is international in scope. In addition to touring the United States, they also regularly embark on overseas performance tours.
California State University, Fullerton's University Singers are directed by Robert Istad, and are recognized as one of the nation's premiere collegiate choral ensembles. The University Singers have performed throughout the world, and have sung with a variety of professional orchestras including the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra under the batons of conductors such as Carl St.Clair, John Mauceri, John Williams, and Keith Lockhart. Internationally acclaimed for their exquisite musicianship, they have been invited to perform at conferences organized by the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Conference. The ensemble’s recent concert tours have included performances in Paris, Austria, Germany, Eastern Europe, Spain, and Australia in venues such as the Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary, a performance for UNESCO in Pisa, Italy, and performances in the Ottobeuren and Eingen Festivals of Music in Germany.
