The Chamber Choir is Tech's select, auditioned mixed vocal ensemble. Its members are principally all-state-level singers who have extensive background in choral singing. Founded in 1998, the choir has established itself as one of the premiere college vocal ensembles in the southeast. Singers are selected through audition each semester and academic credit is available for the course. The ensemble rehearses in the center of campus on Tuesday & Thursday from 4:30 to 6:00 PM.
Repertoire varies from semester to semester, and includes large and small works in the standard repertoire (both unaccompanied and with instruments) modern music, world music, and experimental music with extended technique. In recent years, repertoire has included such works as Distler Totentanz , and Corigliano Fern Hill, Argento Gloria, commissioned works, premieres, multi-media works, and music with texts in several languages.
For the Spring 2013 semester, the Chamber Choir will feature pieces that present "The Poetry in Music" including Bernstein's Chichester Psalms, Vaughan Williams Serenade to Music, and Walton's Cantico del Sole in several concerts throughout the semester. See the School of Music Events for more information.
