The Jenny Lind Vocal Ensemble performs concerts on campus each term, at community events and on their annual tour. The ensemble’s most recent tour was a three-day, three-performance tour, “Yonder Come Day,” in Indiana and Ohio.

The ensemble is named after Jenny Lind (1820-1887), a Swedish opera singer known as the “Swedish Nightingale” and considered the finest coloratura of her day.

Passionate Augie orchestra conductor is going places

The boyish 34-year-old  embodies the artistic drive and passion of many of his students. And as conductor of the 75-member Augustana Symphony Orchestra, Chetel literally is going places.
