Eavesdrop on a moment in a Chamber Singers rehearsal, and you’ll feel excitement, a deep seated breath, focused attention, and something so much greater than any one voice could create.

Each member of the 50 volunteer voices of the Chamber Singers brings a vital talent and spirit to Monday night rehearsals and weekend concerts. If you’re interested in singing with the Chamber Singers, check out member responsibilities to read about what is expected of each member, and see auditions for specific audition information.

Chamber Singers rehearse Monday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. during our August-May season at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Iowa City.

Member Responsibilities

Members are expected to sing in the choir for the entirety of the season, participating in all rehearsals and concerts unless special arrangements are made with the Music Director and their section leader.

Each member must provide his/her own black folder and concert outfit (black tuxedo with black cummerbund and bow tie for men, long black ensemble with sleeves for women).

Annual dues of $100 are assessed to each member, due at the first rehearsal or by arrangement with the Treasurer or President. Reduced annual dues of $75 are available for full-time university students. If new scores are required, that cost may be passed on to the member.

Most importantly, each Chamber Singers member should love the art of choral singing. We aspire to serve the composer’s intent to the best of our ability, which is possible only through the very best effort from each of us.
