Platinum Edition and Diamond Edition are select show choirs that draw members from all major areas of the university. Emphasis is placed on performing literature from the pop, rock and Broadway repertoire. Students are given the opportunity to work with professional choreographers and to explore a wide variety of song styles and movement. Viterbo University’s Platinum Edition and Diamond Edition were founded and are directed by Nancy Allen.
Both ensembles perform a show to entertain the local community each semester. In addition to performing regularly, Platinum Edition also tours nationally and internationally. The ensemble has toured Central America and is a regular partner with FAME Events, serving as hosts in Branson, Orlando, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.
Platinum Edition and Diamond Edition are open to any Viterbo University student, as well as other college students in the La Crosse area. An audition is required to participate in either ensemble.
All new auditioning students AND returning members are required to complete an online student profile.
