The WSU CONCERT CHOIR, conducted by Dr. Lori Wiest, consists of 45 singers, from freshmen to graduate students in various degree studies from across the campus, such as music, engineering, communications, and cell biology. Members of this select ensemble are chosen for their vocal talent as well as their commitment, aural skills, and sight-reading abilities. They perform music of all periods, often performing music by contemporary composers. As part of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts received by Dr. Wiest, Concert Choir toured the state of Washington promoting music by American composers. In February of 2008, Concert Choir performed works by Eric Whitacre conducted by the composer in a series of concerts for the American Choral Music Festival sponsored by the same grant.
