The Chamber Singers of Haverford and Bryn Mawr Colleges, a mixed choir of 28 voices, perform challenging repertoire ranging from the Renaissance to the present day in a variety of languages and styles. In addition to students majoring in music, the ensemble also attracts students from many other majors who wish to perform challenging choral works in a more intimate setting. The Chamber Singers have collaborated with arts organizations and colleges throughout the northeastern United States and frequently explores music from cultures that are not widely represented in the greater choral world. The group has also undertaken numerous foreign and domestic tours, including a 2022 tour of Quebec.
The concert program for Spring 2023 will include works by Goudimel, Schubert, Elaine Hagenberg, Ned Rorem, Stacey Gibbs, Kenneth Frazelle, and Moses Hogan. A set of four pieces will celebrate the choral traditions of Argentina and Venezuela. Maria Dell’Orefice accompanies the ensemble.
