Conductor and Artistic Director Jeffrey Hunt founded the St. Charles Singers (SCS) in St. Charles, Illinois in 1984. This 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, John Rutter (six times), Philip Moore, and Craig Hella Johnson. SCS engages in educational and community outreach through its outreach ensembles and educational scholarship programs.

The SCS discography includes four commercial CDs on the Naxos, Proteus, and MSR labels, along with three self-produced CDs.  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, Gyula Fekete, and Scott Stevenson.
