Since its first appearance on Palm Sunday 1929, the Chapel Choir has upheld the rich Lutheran heritage of fine choral singing and enjoys national and international acclaim as a premier collegiate choral ensemble. The Chapel Choir is a select chorus, comprised of students who are majoring in music at Capital. Considered the Conservatory of Music’s elite choral ensemble, it is known for their performance of a broad range of sacred and secular choral literature.

Under the direction of Dr. Lynda Hasseler since 1990, the Chapel Choir has been honored with invitations to perform for numerous state, regional, national and international conferences and conventions.

The Chapel Choir, along with the Choral Union, and composer Jake Runestad, was awarded the 2018 American Prize, Ernst Bacon Memorial Award for the Performance of American Music and performed the world premiere performance of the Brock Commission of a new work by Jake Runestad at the 2019 ACDA National Conference in Kansas City.
