The University Chamber Singers is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s premiere vocal chamber ensemble. A small choir of 16-20 voices, it is intended to provide the highest level of choral chamber performance experience for graduate and undergraduate singers at the Glenn Korff School of Music and throughout the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The choir explores a broad range of repertoire specializing in literature for unaccompanied vocal performance and contemporary vocal chamber ensembles; including works from early music eras, traditional choral chamber music as well as contemporary literature, and new music composed expressly for them.
The Chamber Singers have been privileged to perform for and work with many guest conductors and composers including Ola Gjeilo, Andre Thomas, Mack Wilberg, Doreen Rao, and in performance collaboration with The American Boychoir. They specialize in performing concerts in beautiful and unique spaces including the Sheldon Museum of Art, the International Quilt Center and the State Capitol Rotunda. The Singers have also enjoyed collaborations with the Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra and the Chiara String Quartet, our resident faculty quartet.
Membership in the Chamber Singers is determined by audition each semester, and music majors and non-majors are encouraged to participate in this unique ensemble. Rehearsals are 250 minutes a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:10 and on Fridays from 2:30 to 3:20. Audition and concert schedule information will be available at a later date.
