Lycoming College Chamber Choir
is a select college choir based at Lycoming College, which
is a four-year private college in Williamsport, Pennsylvania,
Choir is comprised of about 25 students who are chosen by
audition from the larger College Choir and incoming freshmen.
Members of the Chamber Choir are selected primarily for their
vocal abilities, and each is a recipient of a Choral Fellowship,
receiving an annually renewable $500 tuition remission. Like
the other Lycoming choirs, the Chamber Choir is comprised
of students from all academic fields and majors.
Choir's repertoire is diverse, including everything from large-scale
choral works to vocal jazz. For example, in past years the
Chamber Choir has performed everything from Mendelssohn's
Elijah to Lerner-Loewe's If Ever I Would Leave
You and Kern's All the Things You Are.
College Chamber Choir's annual schedule includes performances
at the Family Weekend Concert, Homecoming Weekend Sunday
service, the Lycoming Faculty Christmas dinner, and the
Graduation Concert. The Chamber Choir's focus each spring
is its formal concert presentation of a "master work," which
has in past years included Bach's St. John Passion and
Handel's The Creation. The Chamber Choir
also performs a more relaxed fall concert.
the most flexible of the Lycoming choirs because of its size,
the Chamber Choir has had the opportunity to participate in
many special performances over the past few years. In fall
1996, they sang backup for Barry Manilow during his concert
in Williamsport; at Christmas 1996 and 1999, they performed
at the White House; and they have performed joint concerts
with the Chieftains and the Gregg Smith Singers. The Chamber
Choir is often asked to perform for special Lycoming dinners
and functions as well.
