Texas A&M University Century Singers

History

Our choir was established at Texas A&M University in 1971 as the New Tradition Singers. Our membership was the first chorus and student organization that allowed both male and female members. In 1976, the ensemble was renamed to the Texas A&M Century Singers to commemorate Texas A&M's 100 years of establishment.

Since its inception, Century Singers has stayed true to its purpose of representing Texas A&M to audiences both across the country and internationally. We do so by promoting choral excellence in an institution of higher learning, and offering the university community an opportunity to experience the classical masterpieces of choral literature. 




Collaborations

Century Singers takes pride in our historic collaborations. In January 2014, the choir performed in concert with the world-renowned Nordic Choir from Luther College (http://www.luther.edu/music/nordic-choir/). During the spring 2015 semester, the choir worked closely with Ola Gjeilo (http://olagjeilo.com/) to present “Sunrise Mass”. In March of 2016, the choir performered at the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.

Every three years, the Century Singers travel away from our home in College Station to perform either nationally or internationally. In May of 2017, our choir performed in Walt Disney World, Florida, and continued touring across the Southern United States. In May of 2014, the Century Singers traveled to Germany for an international concert tour. More detailed information on these adventures can be found on our Performance Overview page.
