Davis Chamber Choir in Winter 2014

The Davis Chamber Choir is a small student-run vocal ensemble. We strive to provide a fun, challenging and supportive environment in which dedicated singers can expand upon their vocal skill and repertoire. We perform a wide variety of music written from the Middle Ages to the present, in a range of genres that can usually be considered choral or classical but occasionally include pop and jazz.

This Winter 2015, our repertoire will be based on the theme of Poetry.

Catch us at our Winter Concert at the Davis United Methodist Church on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 7pm.

We hold auditions at the beginning of every quarter. If interested, send us an email!
