Pittsburg State has a long and proud tradition of excellence in the area of vocal music.
Biennial spring tours take the ensembles to various parts of the world. In North America, venues have included: the world headquarters of Habitat for Humanity International and a special performance at the home church of President Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter; the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.; Memorial Church at Harvard University; the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York; and many other locations throughout New England, the Mid-Atlantic States, Southern California, the Southeastern and Southwestern States, and Quebec.
In recent years, the choirs have turned their attention to international travel, the destinations including Germany, Austria, Ireland, Italy, and Scotland. Collaborations with the Southeast Kansas Symphony introduce choir members to oratorios and other great masterworks for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.
