    Synopsis of Curriculum

    The Chamber Singers are LD’s elite chamber choir, selected by audition. Auditions are open to students entering grades 9-12, and occur each May at the HS and MS. Chamber Singers provides members with the opportunity to learn, and perform vocal repertoire at an advanced artistic level. (Repertoire ranges in style from Renaissance, Classical, and Jazz, to Multi-Cultural, Musical Theatre, and Contemporary Music.) The Chamber Singers perform on all of the LD Choir concerts (Fall, Winter, Spring), and at Commencement, as well as giving numerous performances throughout the community. In the past, the Chamber Singers have received invitations to perform at PMEA and ACDA All-State Conferences, with the Central PA Symphony, and at the University of Pittsburgh. Members of the Chamber Singers are encouraged to audition for PMEA District Choir. Students are expected to attend sectionals as a part of this course and as a component of the grade for this course.
