Chamber Singers in Italy

Conducted by Dr. Dwight Bigler, the Chamber Singers is a select mixed ensemble that performs literature spanning the Renaissance to the 21st century. This ensemble has been featured at conventions of the Virginia Music Teachers Association, Virginia Music Educators Association, and American Choral Directors Association. They recently performed at the Vatican and St. Mark's Basilica in Venice as part of their 2012 Italy tour. They have also performed in the Washington National Cathedral, Carnegie Hall, and Brooklyn Academy of Musics' Howard Gilman Opera House. Recent projects include collaborations with Opera Roanoke and the New River Valley Symphony Orchestra, including performances in Mozart's Requiem, Verdi's Otello, and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas.
