Texas A&M University Century Singers
The Texas A&M Century Singers is the university's mixed concert choir comprised of 80 voices. In 1971, the New Tradition Singers were established at Texas A&M University as the first chorus and student organization that allowed both male and female members, and in 1976, the ensemble was renamed to the Texas A&M Century Singers to commemorate Texas A&M's 100 years of establishment.
Century Singers takes pride in historic collaborations. In January 2014, the choir performed in concert with the world-renowned Nordic Choir from Luther College (http://www.luther.edu/music/

Previous concert tours outside of the state have taken them to St. Louis, New York's Carnegie Hall, Italy, Ireland, England, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Spain, Canada, Greece, and France. In addition, the choir annually performs a major work with the Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra and Brazos Valley Chorale.
Since its inception, Century Singers has stayed true to its purpose of representing Texas A&M to audiences both across the country and internationally, promoting choral excellence in an institution of higher learning, and offering the university community an opportunity to experience the classical masterpieces of choral literature. The group performs a diverse repertoire concentrating on classical choir literature, as well as folk songs, spirituals, popular songs, show tunes, and a choral arrangement of "The Spirit of Aggieland."
