With an established choral tradition spanning many decades, the Cliff Singers have consistently been lauded at public performances in local, regional, national, and international venues. An auditioned ensemble open to every member of the university community, the seventy-voice Cliff Singers perform a wide variety of choral music from the finest traditions of Western historical music through ethnic and world music embracing all genres. In addition to their regular concert series through the Music Department, the Cliff Singers sing at university and civic events, including frequent performances with the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra.

Over the years, the Cliff Singers have been selected for performance at state, regional and national conferences of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) and MENC: The National Association for Music Education. The Cliff Singers tour annually and have concertized throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. In February of 2010, the Briar Cliff Singers were invited to sing the National Anthem on the site of the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, the first choir in recorded history to be afforded this unique honor.
