The Chamber Singers of the Colorado Springs Choral Society is currently in their eighth season. The 25-member ensemble, composed of auditioned singers from within the larger Chorale membership, was founded by Director-Conductor Kimberley Schultz in 2010 with the mission to support education and community outreach, encouraging young people to pursue their singing interests beyond high school and college, and to recruit singers for the Chorale. The Chamber Singers perform a wide variety of choral literature from across the centuries.
