Arts and Music

On the road with Choir and Symphonic Band

See the itinerary

The Augustana Choir and Augustana Symphonic Band have a tradition of touring that goes back decades. Both will be on tour this February.

They tour on a three-year rotation to the Midwest, the U.S. and abroad. Many students and alumni say the highlight of their Augustana experience was touring with an ensemble.

This year the Symphonic Band will make its first tour of Spain. Nearly 60 members of the ensemble will perform in Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Segovia and more. (Follow the band on Facebook)

The Augustana Choir will stay closer to home. The choir will work with high school students and perform for many alumni and friends in Rockford, Naperville and Arlington Heights in Illinois, and Appleton, Madison, Ripon and Waukesha in Wisconsin.
