Dear Friends of St. Charles Singers: 

Exploring the vast array of choral music held within the beautiful fabric of this amazing art form is something I look forward to doing each year. The process centers around finding music that will hopefully be exciting, fun, and rewarding for both singers and audience, and yes, it can be a bit overwhelming.  

Our music this year will honor the great traditions of the past by including the music of the early Renaissance—with the music of Johannes Ockeghem—through music of the Baroque period, Romantic period, and the 20th century. Our ensemble also seeks to serve living composers as well, so each concert will feature music that has been created in the 21st Century. You will hear music sung unaccompanied and music that will be accompanied by a colorful palette of instruments including viola, clarinet and piano, organ, and string ensemble. In the end, more than 35 composers’ works will be presented over the four-concert season, so there is certainly something for everyone. 

If you end up coming to one concert or all four, I look forward to greeting you and thanking you for being a patron of the St. Charles Singers! I hope you enjoy the concerts.

With best wishes,

Jeff Hunt
Founder and Music Director
St. Charles Singers

SING! High school and college workshops

We’re offering two exciting workshops this summer for high school and college students. 

Our one-day College Conducting Master Class, on Wednesday, July 17, is a collaborative workshop for collegiate singers and conductors and first- and second-year music educators. Students can also apply to conduct a lab choir composed of an ensemble of St. Charles Singers and fellow class participants. Conductors will receive feedback from the choir and from SCS Music Director Jeff Hunt. 

Our popular SING! workshop, on Thursday, July 18, offers high school students a day to focus on the art and joy of ensemble singing. Student spend the day working in small ensembles; then come together as one choir to present a community concert for friends and family. The clinicians leading the workshop are among the most experienced and talented ensemble singers in the area. 

Details and application

I have been privileged to direct Jeff Hunt’s choir on a number of fondly-remembered occasions over the years, and it is like being allowed to drive someone else’s finely-tuned Rolls-Royce (or whatever is your favorite luxury car). They purr along effortlessly at high speed, negotiate the awkward corners with ease, make you feel like a better driver-and you don’t even have to fill them up with fuel.
