The Wisconsin Lutheran Choir performs four concerts on campus each year, provides music for worship services for local WELS congregations and embarks on an annual spring concert tour. The choir rehearses five hours each week and performs music from the sixteenth through the twenty-first centuries, sung in original languages.

Membership in this select 68-voice ensemble is by audition only. All WLC students are welcome to audition, regardless of major.
