Chamber Singers

The Chamber Singers (297fs) is a highly select chamber choir of 12-16 voices drawn from Glee Club and Chorale. Rehearsals are in the Warbeke Room of Pratt Hall on Thursday evenings 7:15-9:15 pm. Students receive 1 academic credit per semester. Members of Chamber Singers usually possess excellent music reading skills, and enjoy the greater independence of being one of just a few voices on a part. The group specializes in challenging repertory from the 20th and 21st centuries, but regularly performs works from varied musical periods and genres. While the students in the Chamber Singers are talented and accomplished musicians, they major in a broad range of academic subjects including music, literature, biology, religion, and film studies.
