Webster University Chamber Singers is a select ensemble of 24 singers that performs choral literature from many historical periods, world cultures and styles. Recent large-scale works performed include Bach’s Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, Herr, zu dir BWV 131, Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, Copland’s In the beginning, Duruflé’s Requiem, Finzi’s In terra pax and Vivaldi’s Gloria RV 588. Comprised of mostly music majors, Chamber Singers tour annually and represent the Department of Music at university events and community functions throughout the Saint Louis region.
Chamber Singers have sung in master classes for British a cappella ensembles Stile Antico and Voces 8, and for eminent conductors Charlene Archibeque and David Rayl. They are featured in the DVD, “How to Make a Good Choir Sound Great” with Charlene Archibeque, which is available through GIA Publications.
In 2014, Chamber Singers performed for the Southwestern Divisional American Choral Directors Association (SWACDA) conference in Little Rock and for the Missouri Music Educators Association (MMEA) conference at Tan-Tar-A. In spring of 2015, they released their first CD, Beginnings, and were selected by lauded composer David Lang to premiere a new work commissioned for the reopening of the Pulitzer Foundation in Saint Louis.
During the 2015-16 season, they performed with Grammy award-winning singer Josh Groban at the Peabody Opera House (Saint Louis), Ruth Eckerd Hall (Clearwater), Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts (Orlando), and were named semi-finalists in the college/university chorus division of The American Prize.
