Founded in 1932, the 48-voice Adelphian Concert Choir is one of the signature groups of the university and is recognized as one of the Northwest’s most acclaimed ensembles. For more than 70 years this auditioned choir has sustained a level of choral excellence that has brought accolades from audiences in Canada, Europe, and on the West Coast. It has appeared at the state, regional, and national conventions of both the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Conference. Consistently, the Adelphians receive the highest acclaim for standards in repertoire, interpretation, and musicianship.
The Adelphian Concert Choir released their newest CD, In Paradisum. Featuring music from 2011-13, the CD includes works by Bernstein, Chatman, Gabrieli, Sayre, and Whitacre, among others. In Paradisum and other Adelphian recordings are available for purchase at the University Bookstore.
