Current Call for Singers

America! — From Billings to Hogan
A short overview of choral music from the United States

Who & Why

… remain largely unchanged. 

We are aiming to attract experienced singers, looking for some extra challenges in their musical life. 

We are hoping to push the boundaries of what a non-professional chamber choir can achieve, performing challenging repertoire with a few, focused rehearsals.
