About the UCSB Choirs
The UCSB Chamber Choir is an outstanding ensemble of music majors and non-majors, comprised of 36 of the best singers from the UCSB campus. Specializing in virtuosic a cappella choral music from the Renaissance to the 20th century, the group has collaborated with the Ericson Chamber Choir from Stockholm, Madrigalchor Kiel from Germany, the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, the Santa Barbara Symphony, and the Asia-America Symphony Orchestra in Los Angeles. The Chamber Choir undertakes frequent international concert tours, and has twelve CD recordings to its credit. 
A dynamic group of music majors and non-majors, the UCSB Women’s Chorus draws its membership from some 20 departments across campus. The Women’s Chorus performs the main repertoire for women's voices, including a cappella and accompanied works, often with unusual combinations of instruments. The Women’s Chorus has been featured on four CD recordings with the UCSB Chamber Choir, including Carl Orff’s "Carmina Burana".
