Cincinnati Camerata is a mixed-voice choral ensemble of about 30 accomplished volunteer singers that focuses on chamber and contemporary classical music from medieval chant through living composers. We produce 2-3 formal concerts each season along with several more social programs through a smaller satellite group, the Camerata Consort. The Camerata is also committed to promoting new choral music through our annual Composition Contest prize, and we collaborate with some of Cincinnati’s finest instrumental and vocal chamber ensembles.
Around half of our ensemble are degreed musicians or music teachers, and membership is by audition through our artistic director, Brett Scott, a member of UC-CCM’s choral conducting faculty. Our repertoire is challenging, and no other choir in Cincinnati offers the Camerata’s high-quality performance opportunity for only a moderate time commitment from members with busy careers beyond music.
