The Genevans are heir to a tradition of choral singing dating from the early years of the college over a century and a half ago. The mission of the choir expresses Geneva’s belief that music, as one of God’s finest gifts, meets a deep, universal need in people. The choir’s repertoire is broad and varied, reflecting the belief that “all of life, always and everywhere, is life in the presence of God.” The Genevans go on a tour throughout the United States every year and travel to Europe every fourth year.
