The Cornell University Chamber Singers are celebrating our second annual summer residency in Nantucket from August 12th -18th to get involved in the community, learn about the history of the island, and share our passion for music

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will be our base for this week, generously offering homestays for singers and rehearsal spaces for the choir. In addition to an Evensong service on Tuesday and a full-length concert on Friday, we will also be participating as a choir for their Sunday morning service.

We will also have the privilege of visiting the Museum of African American History, where we will have the opportunity to learn, ask questions, and be surrounded by the incredible history of the African American community on Nantucket, culminating in an evening performance at the historic African Meeting House

We are accepting donations at the Evensong Service towards refugee assistance on the island, at the African Meeting House to benefit the Museum of African American History, and at our full-length concert to support our own choir, so we can continue to serve as ambassadors of the arts at Cornell University.

Thank you for your support!

In August, 2018 the Chamber Singers completed a successful cultural exchange in Maui, HI. In addition to collaborating with the Maui Chamber Orchestra and Chorus on Haydn’s Harmoniemesse at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, the Chamber Singers held a free concert at the historic Keawala’i Congregational Church.

 
There’s nothing that says “Welcome to Maui” like being greeted with Leis and singing and ‘ukulele and beloved former directors! From this initial welcoming came gesture after gesture of amazing hospitality, helpfulness, and camaraderie.

The Keawala’i concert flew by in a whirlwind of emotion, bolstered by a lovely and lively audience. They particularly enjoyed our Hawaiian repertoire, which we’d worked on over the course of the week with John Rowehl and other local teachers and singers. I was grateful to come away from our time in Maui knowing some of their musical tradition and language.

There were moments during the evening performance where the distant sound of crashing waves rocked with the tempo of our music and I just couldn’t have asked for a more amazing experience.

Seeing Stephen’s smile while conducting and his own joy was inspiring. The gratitude from the group was very rewarding. I felt they really valued our Hawaiian hospitality.
