Chamber Singers

The Chamber Singers is an elite group of vocalists led by Dr. Jen Garrett.

The Singers repertory encompasses a broad spectrum of musical styles: Medieval through Contemporary art music, world music, popular music, show music, and opera. The Chamber Singers performed music from 11 countries on their 2011 tour of Hawaii. Most recently the choir toured New York and performed at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Eric Whitacre.

Participation in this select choral group requires an audition and those who earn a position will be expected to come to rehearsals with assigned music already learned.  The choir performs in two concerts each semester plus additional performances, including caroling in the fall semester. 

This course is transferable to all UC, CSU and private colleges.  Chamber Singers meets on Monday evenings from 6-10:10pm in Forum 102.

Fall 2013 Audition Information:

Anyone who has not previously sung in Chambers Singers and wishes to enroll for the Fall 2013 term must audition with Dr. Garrett in her office (Fine Arts room 43A) during the two hours preceding the first rehearsal.  Sign-up sheets will be posted outside FA 43; please sign up as soon as possible. 

Please email Dr. Garrett (Jennifer.garrett@bakersfieldcollege.edu) if you cannot attend this audition time.  Singers do not need to bring a prepared piece of music but will be expected to demonstrate range and pitch matching in a series of vocal exercises.
