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.
Melissa Auvil, Soprano, is in her seventh season with SBCS. Originally from Midland, Michigan, Melissa earned her undergraduate degree in Music Education at Central Michigan University and her Masters in Voice Performance from the University of Missouri Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance.
