Miami University Chamber Singers and Choraliers perform Oct. 15


The Miami University Chamber Singers and Choraliers, conducted by William Bausano, present their Fall Concert, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15, in Hall Auditorium.

The Chamber Singers will open the concert with two pieces sung in German from the 19th century composers, Franz Schubert and Robert Schumann. The remainder of their portion of the concert will include works by contemporary American composers, Peter Durow and Robert Linn. 

The portion of the concert of the Choraliers, Miami University’s oldest and largest women’s chorus, begins with a chorus by 17th century French composer, Jean Bapiste Lully, and is followed by works of contemporary American composers. 

The choir was established in 1908 and “has grown from an informal 25-member society into a premier chorus composed of singers representing majors from every division in the university,” according to  the department of music website

After a series of live-streamed concerts in past semesters, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities William Bausano said he is “very happy to be able to have person-to-person rehearsals.” He also looks forward to “having the choirs sing for a live audience.”

Admission to the event is free. 

The event will also be live-streamed and the link is available through the Miami University Event Calendar found here
