The Calvin College Alumni Choir is established to organize and promote choral singing of the highest caliber.

 Through rehearsal and performance the choir, in community, will cultivate and develop an awareness, understanding, and appreciation for the Christian faith, for choral music both sacred and secular, and for Calvin College.

 The Alumni Choir will achieve these purposes by sponsoring and participating in concerts, providing a ministry of music in church worship services, and by engaging in other performance opportunities.

The Calvin College Alumni Choir was founded in 1977 by Helen Hoekema VanWyck, now the Director of Choral Activities at Trinity Christian College, and conducted by various members of the choir. In 1981, Anton Armstrong, current conductor of the St. Olaf Choir, became the choirs’ fourth conductor. During Dr. Armstrong’s tenure, the choir performed for the ACDA National Convention in Salt Lake City (1985). Dr. Charles Smith, Director of Choral Activities at Michigan State University (emeritus), was the choir’s fifth conductor. In 1998, Dr. Pearl Shangkuan became the choir’s sixth conductor and led the choir for twenty years. The choir has been accompanied since 1980 by Dr. Kenneth Bos. Guest directors have included such eminent composers and conductors as Sir David Willcocks, Semyon Bychkov, John Rutter, Moses Hogan, André Thomas, Joseph Flummerfelt, and Maria Guinand.

Members of the choir are admitted by audition. Spanning from the most recent graduating class to the 1970’s, the singers are all alumni of Calvin College and represent a variety of professions. In addition to its annual concerts, the Calvin College Alumni Choir participates in worship services at area churches and other community functions.

The choir has released several commercial recordings and commissioned new works, many of which have become staples in choral repertory sung around the world. The choir has performed with the Grand Rapids Symphony as the featured guest chorus in performances of the B Minor Mass and the Magnificat by Bach at the Grand Rapids Bach Festival. In 2010 the choir received third place in the American Prize competition that recognizes the very best in the performing arts in the United States. Most recently the choir performed at the prestigious Templeton Prize ceremony honoring Calvin graduate and former professor Dr. Alvin Plantinga.

Nationally recognized for its choral artistry, the Calvin College Alumni Choir has been invited multiple times to performances at conferences of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) at national, division and state levels. The choir has also performed for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM), and the American Guild of Organists (AGO). During Dr. Shangkuan’s 20 year tenure the choir toured Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Taiwan, the Netherlands, and most recently as the anchor choir for an international festival in France and Switzerland.
