2019-2020 Season

20140301_Trade-151_0124-copy.jpg

Celebrating our 10th anniversary.

We’re embarking on our most ambitious season yet! Each concert celebrates cooperative music-making in one form or another. This Fall we perform a contemplative concert of English cathedral music with organist Michael Smith. In March 2020, we will give the world premiere of A Different Kind of Flight., written by Dale Trumbore and commissioned by the Chestnut Street Singers, featuring words penned by current and former members of the ensemble. Summer 2020 brings a collaboration with New Jersey’s Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble, singing works for larger choir that benefit from joint forces.

View our season calendar below – we hope to see you soon!
