As men help build a “culture of singing” at Texas State they foster a community of beautiful music in a positive environment.

Ladies in the Women’s Choir participate in the Texas Collegiate Women’s Choir Festival each fall to sing with a national clinician and other women’s choirs across the state of Texas. The singers collaborate with the Men’s Choir each semester to sing literature for mixed voices as well as for treble voices.
