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 Christmas concerts are essential spiritual experiences for us, and the musical highlight of the holidays. The Chamber Singers are a local treasure which we hope to enjoy for a long time." -- Beverly and Bruce Burmeister, LaPorte, Indiana
