The Alma College Choirs

Students from every academic major on campus sing in the Alma Choirs, and choir alums are scientists, doctors, teachers, lawyers, actors, artists, bakers, bankers, brewers, and the list goes on!  If you sing, come join the Alma Choirs, and if scholarship money will help you afford college, you are encouraged to audition for an Alma Choir scholarship.
