The Berkeley Community Chamber Singers (BCCS) is an a cappella group of 16–32 singers that serves as the outreach arm for BCCO. BCCS sings a varied repertoire of madrigals, gospel, pop songs, and spirituals and performs at diverse venues, such as senior residences, hospitals, and homeless shelters. BCCS also presents concerts for the general public - Check out our upcoming performances below.

BCCS is led by Music Director Costas Dafnis. Costas is a composer and sound artist.  In addition to concert music, he writes for theater, dance and games, lectures in film at the San Francisco Art Institute and teaches musical composition at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. It is a bit of a homecoming for Costas, who was one of three finalists of BCCO’s Young Composers Competition, where his work Carmen Vocis was performed. 

  • Chamber singers are holding free holiday singalongs - all BCCO singers and guests are welcome, Friday Nov 27, Thursday Dec 3, 10, and 17 at 5:15 pm. 
  • Singers are preparing a virtual performance recording to send to Bread & Roses, Sakura Kai Senior Center, Berkeley Pines, Ashby Care Center, Piedmont Gardrens, St Paul's Tower. It wil be available on BCCO's Story Chorus when completed.
