The University of Washington Chamber Singers is a professional level choir consisting of graduate and advanced undergraduate music majors, as well as advanced musicians of majors from across the UW community. Established as the Madrigal Singers in the 1930’s under the direction of composer Gerald Kechley, the group gained recognition through its notable conductors Rodney Eichenberger and Joan Conlon. Acclaimed for its vocal prowess and artistic expression, the choir focuses on performing challenging repertoire of all periods with particular emphasis on performing art music of our time. Under the direction of Geoffrey Boers, the group has gained a national and international reputation with performances at theCanadian National Music Festival, the national conventions of Orff Kodaly Society, GALA, and College Music Society, regional conventions of ACDA andMENC, as well as four international tours to the Baltic countries (2000, 2005, 2010, 2013) and to Hungary (2007). Most recently, the choir returned to the Baltic to participate in the Latvian National Song Festival during the summer of 2013.
