In 1971, the New Tradition Singers were established at Texas A&M University as the first chorus and student organization that allowed both men and women. The ensemble was renamed the Texas A&M Century Singers in 1976 to commemorate the A&M centennial. Since its inception, Century Singers has stayed true to its purpose of representing A&M to audiences across the country, promoting choral excellence in an institution of higher learning, and offering the university community an opportunity to experience the classical masterpieces of choral literature.
Today, The Century Singers is a close-knit family that connects through a shared passion for music. Members also have the opportunity to participate in events throughout the year including overnight retreats and activities such as ice-skating, movie nights, and group dinners. Involvement in both social gathering and formal rehearsals brings members together as Aggies, musicians, and friends. This creates a truly unique and rewarding experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.
The Century Singers perform in the Choral Activities Spirit of Aggieland Holiday Concert every year, as well as the Century Singers Spring Concert and Spring Tour. Within the Century Singers is the small ensemble: Century Sounds.
