    The Chamber Singers are the core group of singers for the Calvert Hall Choral Department. They are invited from the Hallmen Chorus by the director, regardless of grade, to perform advanced (Level 5-6) classical a cappella music ranging from classical to modern. A fairly high level of music reading skills is a pre-requisite. The group participates in the annual AIMS Choral Festival, district and state assessments, and smaller venues in the area. These singers act as peer educators to the younger or less experienced singers.
