St. Charles Singers, founded in 1984, is a cadre of 40 professional musicians, of which 28 – 32 typically sing in each performance under the direction of Maestro Jeff Hunt. Recognized for their sublime interpretation of choral classics, the singers strive for excellence in every performance, sing with passion and demonstrate a sincere desire to create beauty and connect with their audience. The choir’s home venue is Baker Memorial United Methodist Church in St. Charles, IL. Performances also occur in and around the city of Chicago and occasionally the choir travels nationally and internationally.
In February of 2016 the choir enjoyed the industry wide release of its most recent recording project, Bushes and Briars. The recording has been well reviewed and has been featured locally and nationally on classic music stations.
St. Charles Singers continues its Mozart Journey, a musically challenging undertaking of an estimated 17 concerts, through which Mozart’s sacred choral compositions will be performed and recorded. To our knowledge no American choir has previously performed and recorded this volume of music as the complete, known genre. We feel this is a musically historic undertaking, and are committed to making this 18th Century music readily available to a 21st Century audience.
St Charles Singers is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization. Initiatives include the awarding of higher education scholarships, invitations to high school choral groups to serve as concert assistants and the annual Sing! Workshop for Teens. We seek to include education and outreach as a means of acting on our mission and vision.
We appreciate our audience as a part of our music family and thank you for your support.
