Dartmouth Chamber Singers


The Dartmouth Chamber Singers is a 25-member undergraduate vocal ensemble of Dartmouth College that has performed successfully throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia in the ensemble’s first 30 years. Founded in 1979 by Professor Melinda O’Neal, the Chamber Singers perform music from all periods, but have over 30 years developed a focus on sacred and secular works from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and modern periods, often collaborating with period-instrument ensembles. The Chamber Singers strives for high standards of musicianship and professionalism among Dartmouth undergraduates from all majors and backgrounds.

Under the baton of Dr. Robert Duff, the Chamber Singers consistently refine technique and collaborate with other vocal ensembles.  The ensemble has worked in master classes with Peter Phillips, Paul Hillier, Marcel Peres, Nordic Voice, the Orlando Consort, and other distinguished artists-in-residence at the Hopkins Center, Dartmouth’s center for the performing arts.

An actively touring ensemble, the Chamber Singers have given concerts in Europe and recently collaborated with the oldest glee club of Japan.  The ensemble participated in an exchange with the University of Hawaii in 2005, and worked with choral conductor William Dehning of the University of Southern California on a concert tour to southern California in 2008.
