VERMILLION, S.D. – The University of South Dakota Chambers Singers’ studio album “Let Me Fly” is available to stream and download on iTunes and Spotify.

“The album has received several strong professional reviews including being named the Number 22 album of the year by Textura,” said David Holdhusen, the Chamber Singers conductor. “It’s been the top download for three straight months by our publisher PARMA Recordings.”

According to the review by Textura, a music review publication, “The University of South Dakota Chamber Singers sounds more like a long-established professional choir than a group of undergraduate and graduate students chosen through audition from the entire university body; given the evidence presented on Let Me Fly, the collective must clearly be one of the things of which USD is most proud.”

The 40 member Chambers Singers will go on tour next March with stops in Sioux Falls, Rapid City, the Lead Opera House and Denver. Local events will begin in October.
