LHS CHAMBER SINGERS

The LHS Chamber Singers (formerly Women's Chorus) is the newest ensemble at Lexington High School. In its 11th year, the group has garnered critical acclaim in the region. In December 2015, the group performed by invitation with the Concord Symphony under the direction of Richard Pittman. LHS Chamber Singers was a member of the 2014 ACDA Women’s Commission Consortium, combining resources with 35 other women’s choral groups at the high school, college, community and professional levels to commission three female composers to create new choral works. Susan LaBarr’s Spring Shall Bloom was premiered at LHS in the spring of 2015 and performed throughout our China tour. In 2016, the group premiered a brilliant work of Abbie Bettinis, A Blessing of Cranes, written to commemorate the victims of the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima. Last season, Chamber Singers celebrated its 10th anniversary season by commissioning "I should be glad", a setting of a Sara Teasdale text by eminent composer, Carol Barnett.
