Since its first appearance on Palm Sunday 1929, the Capital University Chapel Choir has upheld the rich Lutheran heritage of fine choral singing and enjoys national and international acclaim as a premier collegiate choral ensemble. A select chorus, the Chapel Choir is known for its performance of a broad and inclusive range of choral literature, flexible and expressive choral tone, and commitment to storytelling with song. In addition to singing for two U.S. presidents, the choir has sung in England, Holland, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Italy, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, the Philippines, China, South Africa, Oman, and Ireland.

Reflective of her commitment to performing music from a global and inclusive perspective, she creates concerts featuring diverse programming, staging, and a range of choral tone colors unified by a narrative theme. As a clinician and guest conductor, she performs regionally, nationally, and internationally with singers of all ages and serves on juries for international competitions. As a singer, Hasseler has performed, toured, and recorded nationally and internationally with professional choral ensembles, including the Robert Shaw Festival Chorus and the Oregon Bach Festival Chorus.
