Description:
The Chamber Singers and Women’s Choir are auditioned ensembles of singers selected from the High School Chorus. The ensembles of 16 to 24 singers each study and perform a wide variety of advanced choral works mainly from the “a cappella” repertoire and accompanied works comparable in difficulty to programs offered at a college level.  The ensembles work on sight singing skills, musical literacy, and vocal technique. Chamber Singers and Women’s Choir have a very rigorous performance schedule.
