The USI Chamber Choir was established in 1996 as a part of the continual growth of music at the University of Southern Indiana. This ensemble, a combination of the USI Mid-America Singers and Band, and the USI Madrigal Singers Show Choir, is dedicated to performing the very best choral literature for the American Chamber Choir. This ensemble has performed through out the Tri-State Area and has toured through Europe. In 2001, the USI Chamber Choir became the sole mixed voice ensemble at USI. This change enabled this new ensemble to fully focus on a wide variety of eclectic repertory.
Made up of students from all disciplines of study, the USI Chamber Choir promotes the quality performance of exquisite choral music in an artistic setting. The repertory of this ensemble ranges from Medieval Carols and secular pieces to more contemporary settings of liturgical and secular choral music.
Admission into the group is by audition only.
Each fall semester, the USI Chamber Choir produces USI's oldest tradition, the USI Madrigal Feaste. This reenactment of a 15th-century English feaste is a delightful event combining period costumes, music, great food and lively farces.
Each spring semester, the Chamber Choir prepares concerts for the University community and performs throughout the Tri-State for civic functions and corporate parties. As an outreach, this group tours annually throughout the United States and Europe to promote the University of Southern Indiana through the performance of fine choral music.
