We sing to share our passionate appreciation of choral music and its ability to reflect the human experience with the beauty and power of ensemble singing. We bring members the possibility to grow as musicians, find personal satisfaction, and deepen community connections. Chanteuses aspires to magnify our mission through performance, commissioning, and collaboration.

Our performances mix traditional and modern styles to take you on a journey through different era and genres, exploring a variety of music from spirituals and folk tunes to modern beats.

We connect you with poetry set to music from Emily Dickinson, William Butler Yeats, e.e. cummings, and more.

Audience & Member Reviews

“I knew I wanted to join Chanteuses as soon as I saw them perform! The skill of the musicians and the conductor coupled with the variety and beauty of the works they sang were so inspiring. I was thrilled to be accepted, and have found a warm and friendly group of seriously committed musicians. I look forward to joining my fellow singers in providing beautiful music to our community!”

“Chanteuses has truly been a lifeline for me. During Covid when we couldn’t sing or be together with anyone, I realized how much this group meant to me. Before, I think I took it for granted that singing with a choir would just somehow always be there. For a while, it wasn’t, and my soul was starving for choral music and singing with others. Now that we’re back, I have these overwhelming moments of gratitude—how incredible it is to come together with a group like this, to be so present in the music, and to realize I get to be a part of this. It is a true joy!”

"We saw Chanteuses perform today and the concert was marvelous. There were a few spine-tingling moments, a knockout piece with some fantastic percussion, and I'm not ashamed to admit I got chills during the last piece. It was a performance not to be missed."
