Its repertoire, which is primarily a cappella, includes music from the Renaissance to the present in a wide variety of styles. The Chamber Singers have performed for state and regional conventions of the American Choral Directors Association and the Music Educators National Conference, and recorded several choral works for a companion record series to music textbooks used by colleges and universities nationwide.
