Chamber Singers

Founded in 2005 and conducted by Michael Slon, the University of Virginia Chamber Singers is a select ensemble drawn from the University Singers, and performs a wide variety of music for chamber choir ranging from early music to contemporary compositions. Recent performances have included the Palestrina Missa Brevis, Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, Bach's Cantata 150, and Mass in B minor with the University Singers, Schubert's Mass in G, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Brahms' Neue Liebeslieder Waltzes, a spoof concert of PDQ Bach, and Orff's Carmina Burana with the University Singers and Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia. In addition, the group has performed popular standards by Harold Arlen and Jerome Kern, and new music by Meredith Monk (with the Meredith Monk Vocal Ensemble), and Eric Whitacre. In 2010, the Chamber Singers made their first appearances at the Staunton Music Festival, including a performance with Grammy-award winning baritone Kevin McMillan.
