Conductor and Artistic Director Jeffrey Hunt founded the St. Charles Singers (SCS) in St. Charles, Illinois in 1984. This forty-two voice, internationally-recognized, professional choir performs throughout the Chicagoland area and appears as guest performers with other arts organizations in concert including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. St. Charles Singers has toured France and the U.K. and has performed under the direction of Timothy Brown, James Conlon and John Rutter (six times) and Philip Moore. SCS engages in educational and community outreach through its outreach ensembles and educational scholarship programs.

The SCS discography includes three commercial CDs on the Naxos and Proteus labels, three self-produced CDs, and the soon-to-be-released Bushes & Briars CD.  In order to add to the choral music repertoire, the ensemble has commissioned new works from respected composers including Charles Forsberg, George Shearing, Robert Boyd, Nathaniel Adams, and Gyula Fekete.
