In Endless Song/Be Anxious for Nothing



The musicians of the USM Chamber Singers represent the most outstanding singers at the University. Chosen through a careful audition process and committed to choral excellence, these undergraduate students have accepted a responsibility for musical distinction through a focus on warmth of tone, precise intonation, and the artistry of understanding the nuance of text. Throughout the northern New England region the Chamber Singers have performed a diverse repertory centered on a cappella literature of the renaissance era and the twentieth century and music of various world cultures. In May 1999 the ensemble toured Europe, singing in some of the most beautiful churches of western Europe, including a performance at Notre Dame in Paris and service music for Sunday Mass at the Karlskirche in Vienna. The singers received wide acclaim in April 2000 for a performance of the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein with the Portland Symphony Orchestra. The ensemble toured Ireland, Wales, and England in May 2002 and are planning a third tour in 2005.
