Music

Hundreds of Concordia Nebraska students make great music and life-long friendships in the performing vocal and instrumental ensembles that flourish on our campus. Our music ensembles perform concerts regularly, on campus and around the world, glorifying God through their talent and sharing the Gospel through music.

From the intimacy of a small chamber music group to the power of Concordia’s award-winning University A Cappella Choir, there is something for every student. All of our ensembles are taught by our outstanding faculty and provide you with professional music education and performance preparation, whether or not you are a music or non-music major.
