“We are always moved by the performances of the South Bend Chamber Singers. The musical works and their interpretations are thought-provoking. It is impossible not to be struck by the intensity of the vocalists under Nancy Menk’s strong direction. The Chamber Singers are one of the true gems of our community, an invaluable artistic asset.”
