About the Singers

Marking 42 years as one of Auburn’s greatest traditions, the Auburn University Singers is a highly select auditioned show choir of 36 singers, 10 instrumentalists, and two technical personnel. Now under the direction of Dr. Dale Farmer, himself a Singers alumnus, the choir was founded in 1972 by Dr. Thomas R. Smith who envisioned adding an extra dimension to music at Auburn. The ensemble functions in a spirit of sharing music and believes in the perpetual pursuit of musical excellence. The group makes itself available as requested to civic and service organizations, campus groups, churches, special events, and communities. In addition, the choir produces two major shows each year in the fall and spring, and travels on annual spring and summer tours.

Since its formation, the Auburn University Singers has been in frequent demand, performing for television specials, conventions, community concerts, and various campus events. The group has entertained guests from all over this country and abroad. In 1974, the Singers made its first trip overseas by taking the message of music and friendship to the people of Romania and has since traveled on nine other occasions to Europe and Latin America. Other summer tours have included special performances in Opryland U.S.A.; the President’s Park in Washington, D.C.; Rockefeller Center and Lincoln Center in New York City; Los Angeles; San Francisco; and Denver. The Auburn University Singers has performed with many celebrities including Bob Hope, Anita Bryant, George Lindsey, Roy Clark, and the Oak Ridge Boys. In 1984, 1992, 1994, and 1998 the group was invited to perform at the Southern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Atlanta, Savannah, Knoxville, and Charleston, respectively. While on the 1995, 2001, 2003, and 2006 tours in New York, the group appeared on the NBC Today Show. In February, 2005, the Singers performed for the National Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Los Angeles. On its 2010 tour the Auburn University Singers performed for Alabama senator Jeff Sessions at the Russell Senate Building in Washington, DC. In May of 2013, the show choir served as goodwill ambassadors for Auburn on a 11-day concert tour of Belgium, France, Germany, and Austria.
