Elegant

“The entire performance was characterized by the complex made simple, a fastidious attention to detail, and an overall concept of expressive musicianship.”

-Jay Miller, South Bend Tribune

32nd Season!

Serenading Michiana for 32 seasons as an
ensemble-in-residence at Saint Mary’s College.

We Are United in Song!

As we had to cancel the remaining concerts of our 19-20 season due to the pandemic, we decided to create our first virtual choir video.  We chose the Star Spangled Banner so that we could make it available to sports teams, civic organizations, and any other venue where our national anthem is often performed by live singers who may not be available during the pandemic.  Thanks to Andrew Nemeth for the video and audio editing, and to WNDU for featuring it on their July 4th broadcast.

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.”
