The Calvin College Alumni Choir, whose members are alumni of Calvin College, has been established to organize, promote, and sponsor a choir of the highest musical caliber. Through their performances, this choir will promote an awareness of and appreciation for the Christian faith, for choral music, both sacred and secular, and for Calvin College.

Continuing to use the musical gifts that the Lord has given them, the singers of the Calvin College Alumni Choir believe that:

"When in our music God is glorified,
And adoration leaves no room for pride,
It is as though the whole creation cried: Alleluia!"
— F.P. Green

Nationally recognized for its choral artistry, the Calvin College Alumni Choir has been under the direction of Dr. Pearl Shangkuan, since 1998. Under her leadership the choir has been honored with invitations to perform at the prestigious national conference of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) in Chicago (2011) and Miami (2007). It has also performed at the division (2010, 2002) and state conventions (2005, 2001) of the ACDA, National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM), and the American Guild of Organists (AGO). Dr. Shangkuan led the choir on a tour to Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines and Taiwan in 2000, the Netherlands in 2004, and France in 2017. The choir has released numerous commercial recordings including Sacred Space, which was released in October 2010. Active in the promotion of American choral music, the choir has commissioned and premiered new works by Moses Hogan, Stephen Paulus, Alberto Grau, Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory among others. The Calvin College Alumni Choir has collaborated with the Grand Rapids Symphony as the featured guest chorus on performances of the B Minor Mass and the Magnificat by Bach at the Grand Rapids Bach Festival in 2005 and 2007. In 2010 the choir received third place in the American Prize competition, a national competition that recognizes the very best in the performing arts in the United States.

The choir was founded in 1977 by Helen Hoekema VanWyck. In 1981, Anton Armstrong, current conductor of the St.Olaf College Choir, became the Alumni Choir’s 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 addition to its four annual concerts, the Calvin College Alumni Choir leads worship services in area churches and performs for Calvin College and community functions. Guest directors have included such eminent composers and conductors as Sir David Willcocks, Semyon Bychkov, John Rutter, and Moses Hogan. Members of the choir are admitted by audition. The singers, representing a variety of professions, are alumni of Calvin College who come from all over West Michigan for a weekly rehearsal.
