Cliff Singers | Briar Cliff University

Cliff Singers

With an established choral tradition spanning many decades, the Cliff Singers have consistently been lauded at public performances in local, regional, national, and international venues.

An auditioned ensemble open to every member of the university community, the Cliff Singers perform a wide variety of choral music from the finest traditions of Western historical music through ethnic and world music embracing all genres. In addition to their regular concert series through the Music Department, the Cliff Singers have sung at university and civic events, including several performances with the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra.

The Cliff Singers tour annually and have concertized throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. The group was even invited to sing the National Anthem on the site of the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, the first choir in recorded history to be afforded this unique honor.
