The Chamber Singers is an ensemble that specializes in advanced choral literature from the Medieval through the Classical period with an emphasis on acapella singing. The group performs several times a year on and off campus, especially during the Christmas season.

This Fall semester the Chamber Singers will be focusing on Madrigal & Holiday music. We will perform this fall at the Illinois State University Madrigal Festival.

Spring semester we will be doing a world premiere piece with Picosa, a small chamber instrument ensemble, featuring composer Jonathan Kirk. We will also do a variety of exciting Chamber Choral Music throughout the year!
