Chamber Chorus

Karen Harvey, Accompanist / Assistant Conductor

The MIT Chamber Chorus (21M.405) is a small, all-student group that performs two concerts each year under the direction of Dr. William Cutter. Designed for the more vocally and musically advanced singer, this select ensemble is challenged with a wide variety of repertoire including music for a cappella chorus as well as choral works accompanied by chamber orchestra and other small instrumental ensembles, or with piano accompaniment. The Chamber Chorus has collaborated with the MIT Symphony, the MIT Wind Ensemble, as well as the Aardvark Jazz Ensemble. Additional collaborations with members of the theater faculty have also resulted in fully-staged and costumed chamber opera productions and opera scene programs. This ensemble has also premiered new works of MIT student and faculty composers.

Being a member of Chamber Chorus means that for three hours a week I don't have to worry about my homework, psets, upcoming exams... I can relax for a bit and enjoy something that gives my other hemisphere a workout.”
