Artistic Director, Kent Hatteberg formed the Louisville Chamber Choir in the fall of 2013. Comprised of 28 musicians drawn from the Louisville Metropolitan Area, the Choir is dedicated to the highest levels of ensemble performance.
The Choir’s mission is to present exceptional musical experiences that nurture community appreciation of choral singing through quality performances, recordings, and collaborations.
Since its inception, the Louisville Chamber Choir has dedicated itself to fulfilling its mission through collaborations, recordings, and performance. Recently, the Choir partnered with WUOL to record Thomas Tallis’ Spem in alium in 360 video and audio creating a virtual reality experience that married classical choral music with cutting edge technology. The Choir also regularly performs with the Louisville Orchestra to present diverse and exciting works including Bernstein’s Mass and Chichester Psalms. The Choir is excited to continue to partner with the Louisville Orchestra again this year in performances of the Mozart Requiem, Monteverdi Vespers, and the annual presentation of Handel’s Messiah.
The Louisville Chamber Choir recently released a Christmas recording that has met with widespread acclaim. The recording was featured on WUOL in December 2017 and contains a mixture of familiar seasonal songs with new carols. The Choir is preparing to release its next album in 2019.
The Choir's performances encompass a wide range of composers from Gabrieli and Byrd to Esenvalds and Whitacre. The Choir presents concerts that engage audiences through technical expertise and emotional expression. Each singer brings his or her musicality and merges it with the other singers to create a synergy between, choir, conductor, and audience.
The Choir also takes pride in its educational outreach. The Choir regularly works with high school ensembles from around the Louisville metropolitan area during their preparations for a variety of concerts.
