The Douglas County Chamber Singers were founded by Vickie Orme in 2002, as a 40-voice choir performing a wide range of choral pieces throughout Douglas County, Georgia. Over the years, the Chamber Singers have matured into a dynamic and talented choral group.
Our mission is to provide quality choral music for the citizens of Douglas County, Georgia, while endeavoring to bring enjoyment to the listeners and the performers. We hope to become THE recognized musical voice of Douglas County. We value and promote musicianship, proficiency, community spirit, enjoyment, and diversity.
We perform two scheduled concerts each season. In addition to our annual concerts, we have performed at several other local events including "Christmas in the Courthouse," the 17th Annual Holiday Concert of the U.S. Army Ground Forces Band of Fort McPherson, the Veteran's Health Fair at Arbor Place Mall, an Evening of Giving at Arbor Place Mall and the Hydrangea Festival. We were honored to sing Mozart's Requiem, conducted by John Rutter, at Carnegie Hall in June 2007.
