CSM’s choirs, directed by Siobhan O’Brien, offer two different vocal experiences for students and community members. The Chorale is the college’s main choir. It is open to all students and community members without audition. The music it performs includes such diverse styles as traditional choir music, gospel music, modern choral music, and contemporary styles of popular music. The Chamber Choir offers is a small, select choir that is available through audition. It performs historic musical styles for small choir such as the madrigal and contemporary popular styles that focus on small ensemble singing.
