Jon Hurty directs the Augustana Choir.

Established in 1931, the Augustana Choir has been conducted by Dr. Jon Hurty since 1996. Under Hurty’s direction, the choir has performed at Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall in New York City, as well as many major cathedrals and concert venues in Sweden, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, Austria, Japan, Korea, Spain and France. See the Augustana Choir’s 2018 European Tour itinerary.

The choir focuses on the highest quality choral literature from the Renaissance through the 21st century. It has released a number of recordings and is frequently invited to perform on commercial and public radio, as well as network television.

Rehearsing daily and performing as many as 20 concerts each year, the Augustana Choir requires a high level of musicianship and serious time commitment. Students in choir also participate in the Handel Oratorio Society.

“The euphoric rush that the choir experienced each concert, night after night, was indescribable.”
