The Clemson Singers are a mixed gender vocal performance group within the Music program of the Department of Performing Arts.

The Singers were established in 1989 by Dr. Dan Rash. From 2005 until 2008, they were under the direction of Dr. Christopher Mathews. Over the years, the Singers have ranged in size from 32 to 65, depending on the style and preference of the conductor.

The Singers perform many styles of music, from madrigals to spirituals. In 2000, they performed at Carnegie Hall over the Thanksgiving break. President and Mrs. Barker joined them for Thanksgiving dinner while on the tour. In 2005, they toured South Carolina, stopping at Hillcrest High in Simpsonville, St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Columbia, and Grace Episcopal Church in Charleston. In 2007, they toured to Kentucky, stopping along the way at high schools and performing with the Lee University Chorale in Cleveland, Tennessee. The tour culminated with a performance in Frankfort's (KY) First Baptist Church.
