The choirs and instrumental ensembles of Concordia Seminary exist as service rather than concert or performing groups. As such, the choirs provide training in musical skills and literature, worship and liturgy. The choirs provide leadership in worship services on the campus of Concordia Seminary as well as some area congregations.

Opportunities related to music currently being offered at Concordia Seminary include: Concordia Seminary Chorus (a male chorus comprised of seminary students, faculty, and staff); Pro Musica Sacra (a choir of mixed voices including students, faculty, staff, wives, and other members of the seminary community); Concordia Brass Choir; Concordia Handbell Choir; and various other solo and ensemble opportunities.
