The Department of Music presents the Camerata Chamber Choir under the direction of Stephen Caracciolo. A select choir of 40–50 singers drawn from all majors of the university, Camerata performs a wide variety of works drawn from the expansive choral repertoire, including Renaissance motets, folksongs, choral-orchestral works, German part songs, Russian sacred liturgies, American spirituals, and new works. In previous seasons Camerata has accepted invitations to perform with conductor-composer John Rutter at Carnegie Hall and has provided entertainment for guests touring the White House during the holiday season.
The spring 2020 concert, The Song of Creation, features Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia/Earth Mass, with the UMBC Jazz Combo and special guest Matthew Belzer on soprano saxophone. The complete program includes:
- In the Beginning (from The Creation) — Franz Joseph Haydn
