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.
Dawn Bontrager, Alto, is in her eleventh season with SBCS. Dawn is a native of Northern Minnesota. She earned her undergraduate degree in social work from Goshen College, a Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Chicago and a Master's of Divinity from the Chicago Theological Seminary.
