The Lycoming College Chamber Choir is a select college choir based at Lycoming College, which is a four-year private college in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA.
The Chamber Choir is comprised of about 25-30 students who are chosen by audition from the larger College Choir and incoming freshmen. Members of the Chamber Choir are selected primarily for their vocal abilities, and each is a recipient of a Choral Fellowship, receiving an annually renewable $500 tuition remission. Like the other Lycoming choirs, the Chamber Choir is comprised of students from all academic fields and majors.
The Chamber Choir's repertoire is diverse, including everything from large-scale choral works to vocal jazz. For example, in past years the Chamber Choir has performed everything from Mendelssohn's Elijah to Lerner-Loewe's "If Ever I Would Leave You" and Kern's "All the Things You Are."
The Lycoming College Chamber Choir's annual schedule includes performances at the Homecoming/Family Weekend Concert, the Graduation Concert, and assorted Lycoming events throughout the year. The Chamber Choir's main concert in recent years has been a Concert at Noon in the fall.
Often the most flexible of the Lycoming choirs because of its size, the Chamber Choir has had the opportunity to participate in many special performances over the past few years. In fall 1996, they sang backup for Barry Manilow during his concert in Williamsport and they have been invited to perform twice for the holiday celebrations at the White House. In 2018, the ensemble performed alongside the Chieftains for the second time at Williamsport's Community Arts Center.
