The UT Dallas Chamber Singers (MUSI 3385/4347) is a performing ensemble of 20-24 singers. The repertoire for the ensemble is selected from a broad range of chamber vocal literature, including both sacred and secular music spanning the Renaissance to the contemporary periods of music history and modern jazz arrangements. The ensemble performs regularly on campus, including performances at Best of Broadway, the Renaissance Faire, the Annual Holiday Sing during the fall semester, and in concert as a Jazz Singers Ensemble in the spring semester. The UT Dallas Chamber Singers collaborate with many other ensembles on campus, including the Jazz Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble and Dance Ensemble. They also perform on the Fall and Spring Arts Festivals every semester. In the spring, the Chamber Singers join the UT Dallas Community Chorale for a choral concert of large works with orchestra.

University of Texas Chamber Singers : American Choral Music

Review: This anthology brings together representative works from the mainstream of contemporary American choral music. Charles Ives's Psalm 90 evokes a mood reminiscent of congregational Sunday singing in New England. Copland's In the Beginning recalls his Fanfare for the Common Man, while Lukas Foss's Behold, I Build An House shows the stylistic influence of Copland. Vincent Persichetti's Flower Songs reveal his deep commitment to his favourite poet E.E. Cummings, and favours the women's voices. In Fern Hill, set for alto, chorus and orchestra, composer John Corigliano sings of the joys of youth.

Songlist: Flower Songs, Psalm 90, Fern Hill, Behold, I Build An House, In The Beginning
