Chamber Singers Releasing New CD
“I am very proud of this ensemble,” said David Holdhusen, director of choral activities and chair of the USD Department of Music. “I think this recording is a great showcase for these young musicians. We have built a very strong choral program here at the University of South Dakota and I think this CD is a testament to the efforts of all the students who have been a member of the Chamber Singers. To release a recording on a national label of this quality is very exciting. I hope the public will enjoy the beautiful music this CD has to offer.”
The CD is made up of recordings from a collection of performances from 2014-2016. The music is primarily traditional folk song and spiritual arrangements and new works from American composers. Many of the classic songs were given a new arrangement to feature the talent of the singers.
USD Chamber Singers is made up of 40 undergraduate and graduate students selected through an audition process.
Details about the CD and a sample are available online.
