The Berkeley Community Chamber Singers (BCCS) is an a cappella group that serves as BCCO’s outreach arm. Currently at 21 voices strong, BCCS sings a varied repertoire that ranges from madrigal and international music to traditional and pop Americana. It performs at such venues as senior residences, hospitals, shelters, street fairs, and other community events.  – Check us out HERE.

BCCS is led by Music Director Costas Dafnis, a multiple award winning composer and sound artist. Costas writes music for orchestral concerts, theatrical productions, dance, and interactive games. He teaches technology and composition at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and has lectured in film at the San Francisco Art Institute. Costas was a BCCO Young Composers Competition finalist, when his work Carmen Vocis was performed at the annual Spring Concert.
