The MIT Chamber Chorus presents an intimate and eclectic program of works reflecting on the nourishing role of music in our lives. Featuring settings of poetry by Shakespeare, Langston Hughes, W.H. Auden, Barbara Crooker and others, the program considers the relationship between music, time, healing, and wonder and our struggle to find joy and peace in the rush of our hectic lives. The Chamber Chorus will perform works composed in the last 85 years, including Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, Dan Locklair’s choral drama Instant Culture, and works by Rosephanye Powell, Kim André Arnesen, Dale Trumbore, and Craig Hella Johnson.

The MIT Chamber Chorus is a small student group that performs two concerts each year under the direction of Dr. Andrew Clark. Designed for the more vocally and musically advanced singer, this select ensemble is challenged with a wide variety of repertoire including music for a cappella chorus as well as choral works accompanied by small ensembles, or piano. Chamber Chorus has collaborated with the MIT Symphony, the MIT Wind Ensemble and with Theater faculty mounting chamber opera productions and opera scene programs.
