Only the "B"est Composers: UMD Chamber Singers
Celebrating 20 years, the UMD Chamber Singers are one of the nation’s most honored and respected collegiate ensembles with a repertoire that spans over 500 years of music history. In honor of their anniversary, they present a concert of only the “B”est composers: Brahms, Britten, Barber, Byrd, Barnett and Burleigh.
Led by Edward Maclary, the choral ensembles have achieved international renown and offer a wide array of choral experiences with music encompassing all styles and eras. In addition to this season’s on campus choral performances, the UMD Concert Choir participates in annual collaborations with both the National Symphony Orchestra and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, the Music Center at Strathmore and the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Last spring, the UMD Concert Choir performed at Carnegie Hall with the National Symphony Orchestra.
