Established in 1946, the Aeolians of Oakwood University present choral music repertoire from the Baroque era to the 21st century. They have collaborated with symphony orchestras to present masterpieces of Brahms, Mozart, Schoenberg, Dvorak, Hailstork, Verdi and Dett to name a few. They have also performed and recorded with artists such as Kathleen Battle, Angela Brown, Take 6 and Jacob Collier. Early 2012 they performed in Moscow, Russia and in the summer competed at the 7th World Choir Games earning three gold medals and overall championship of the Spiritual category. In 2017, they won the Choir of the World award at the LLangollen International Musical Festival, Wales, UK. The summer of 2018 they again won three gold medals at the 10th World Choir Games and overall championship for both the University Choirs and the Spirituals categories. In 2019, they became the 1st HBCU choir to be selected from blind auditions to perform at the National ACDA Conference. The Aeolians are thankful for ministry opportunities, and have been blessed to be called to minister all over the world.
