The Pride of Michiana

South Bend Chamber Singers

Established In 1987

The South Bend Chamber Singers, an ensemble-in-residence at Saint Mary’s College, is in its 31st season. Over the past 30-plus years, the Singers have presented major choral-orchestral works such as Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Magnificat, Mass in B Minor, and St. John Passion; Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, Brahms’ Requiem 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 South Bend Chamber Singers is well known for its rich choral sound, its surprising mixture of harmonies and rhythms, its blend of works- old and new. We highly recommend an evening spent with these talented singers and their director, Dr. Nancy Menk.”
