BCCO Outreach – The Chamber Singers

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 us out HERE.

BCCS is led by Music Director Costas Dafnis. Costas is a composer and sound artist.  In addition to conducting, he composes music for theater, dance and interactive 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. 

Fall 2022 performances are listed below:

The Chamber Singers meet on Tuesdays, 5:45 to 7:45 PM, at St. Alban’s Church 1501 Washington Ave, Albany. Winter/Spring 2023 rehearsals start on February 7, 2023.
