About this Organization:
Cambridge Chamber Singers (CCS, formerly known as Cambridge Madrigal Singers), now in its 35th season, offers exciting and eclectic concert programs to connect audiences in Greater Boston with the best in choral music, from traditional masters to talented new composers. The group's name was changed from Cambridge Madrigal Singers to Cambridge Chamber Singers at the end of 2007, to better reflect the music that the group performs. Under Musical Director Dr. Raymond Fahrner, CCS seeks out innovative programming and creative collaborations. CCS sponsors the annual Composition Competition, a popular contest for composers from around the world, and premieres the winning composition each Spring.
