Besides regional performances in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Canada, the UWS A Cappella Choir has also collaborated with the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra in performances of Verdi's Requiem, and performed in the Venezuelan Choral Festival, under the direction of acclaimed Venezuelan conductors Maria Guinand and Alberto Grau. Opportunities are available for student conductors of the A Cappella Choir to direct pieces for concerts.
