Chamber Singers is an elite, auditioned group of students and alumni that perform challenging repertoire across all styles and genres. They perform in at least 4 major concerts a year (two per semester) and can be seen at campus football games, in the community, and at festivals such as the USC Invitational each spring. When appropriate, this choir represents Bakersfield College in touring locally and abroad. The Chamber Singers went on a performance tour of Italy in June 2015 where they gave concerts in Rome, Florence, and Venice. This summer the Chamber Singers returned from a successful tour of Australia where they delighted audiences in Cairns and Sydney with concerts and even two ABC radio appearances. The highlight of the tour included performing in the Sydney Opera House under the direction of Grammy-Award winning conductor, Craig Hella Johnson. The Chamber Singers look forward to the 2018-2019 school year where they will give performances and service within the community of Bakersfield to show their appreciation for the support given for the Australia tour. Participation in Chamber Singers includes study of major choral literature of all the historical periods.
Prerequisite: Students must audition.
Chamber Singers next audition will take place in November if there area any current members leaving the ensemble. Please contact Dr. Garrett for information by email: email@example.com
Every member of Chamber Singers must now obtain a form signed by Dr. Gerhold and Dr. Garrett. Each person will fill out the form and take it the registration office . You can no longer register on-line.
