Ensembles Chamber Singers
The University Chamber Singers ensemble is comprised of music majors/minors, University students, alumni and invited community members who demonstrate excellent ability as choral singers. Members audition for placement in the ensemble.
When active, this ensemble rehearses multiple times during the week and performs frequently. This ensemble has performed on campus, as well as touring, singing a wide variety of music and collaborating frequently with the University Flute ensemble.
This small ensemble has recorded two compact discs - Christmas Around the World and Of Wind and Voice. The latter is a recording of music written or arranged specifically for the Flutes Unlimited LTD ensemble and the SXU Chamber Singers. This ensemble also gave the premiere performance of Above Me Round Me Lie on Founders Day, December 2004 in McDonough Chapel. American composer, Stephen Paulus, composed Above Me Round Me Lie specifically for Saint Xavier University and this occasion. Watch the video of the Founders Day performance.
