The Iowa Statesmen, one of the region's leading men's choirs, was founded by Dr. Rodde in the fall of 2000. We are men who make good music and love doing it. The Iowa Statesmen Chorus is made up of 100+ men singing numerous songs in Ames, Iowa each year. We perform various concerts in Music Hall and at Stephen's Auditorium as well as traveling around the Des Moines metro in the Spring to high schools. In addition to annual fall and spring concerts, the Statesmen annually join the other three ISU choirs to present both the Holiday and Masterworks Concerts, each with orchestra. The choir also embarks on a brief regional tour every spring. In 2005 the men sang for large enthusiastic audiences in Davenport and Waterloo. Each concert closes with the rousing ISU School Songs -- a great tradition.
