MIAMI UNIVERSITY CHAMBER SINGERS
The Chamber Singers is a select mixed choir of 28-32 voices that specializes in chamber choral and vocal works from the Renaissance era to the contemporary period. In addition to local performances the Chamber Singers have toured throughout the Midwest where they have established a reputation of excellence in performance. The Chamber Singers have performed at conferences of the Ohio Music Educators Association, the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Association. In 2001 the Chamber Singers traveled to Ecuador to participate in the Twenty-third International Choral Festival of Guayaquil, and performed with the San Antonio Vocal Arts Ensemble as a part of the Miami University Performing Arts Series. Members of the Chamber Singers joined together with other Miami University choral singers on a tour to Russia, Estonia, and Finland in May, 2003. Recent regional tours have included Atlanta, Knoxville, New York, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Minneapolis. In 2010 the Chamber Singers gave the world premiere performance of Adolphus Hailstork's "Sing-a My Song," a work written for the Chamber Singers and commissioned by the university in celebration of the Miami University 200th Anniversary. Special events this year include the Performing Arts Series performance with the American Spiritual Ensemble and a tour to Ireland and Scotland. See information below.
