History

Organized in 1972 by Clayton Lein, the Lafayette Chamber Singers is a semiprofessional group that records and performs in Greater Lafayette and throughout central Indiana. The 16-member ensemble offers audiences music from a wide variety of traditions and a span of ten centuries, ranging from pieces long hidden in archives to unpublished contemporary works.

The ensemble's musical blend and stylish performances, especially of music of the Renaissance and the twentieth century, set it apart from other musical experiences.

Among the group's many musical credits are performances at the celebrated Unity Temple Concert Series in Chicago, participation in the prestigious Presenter Touring Program of the Indiana Arts Commission and a concert for the Indiana Chapter of the American Choral Directors' Association. The singers also have appeared with the Amernet String Quartet, the Indianapolis Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, and in conjunction with Opera de Lafayette.

The Lafayette Chamber Singers is a member organization of the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
