The South Bend Chamber Singers, an ensemble-in-residence at Saint Mary's College, is in its 28th season this year. Over the past 20-plus years the Singers have presented major choral-orchestral works such as Handel's Messiah, Bach's Magnificat, B Minor Mass, and St. John Passion, Vivaldi's Gloria, Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, and Orff's Carmina Burana. Yet, the ensemble concentrates primarily on works by living composers and regularly commissions new works and unusual and complex arrangements.

"The group's concert Sunday night at Saint Mary's College was first-class. The O'Laughlin Auditorium audience surely thought so, responding warmly to the type of music that frightens off most choral directors. " -- Rob Rhein, South Bend Tribune
