The University of Regina Chamber Singers is an award-winning ensemble specializing in the performance of a cappella choral repertoire, ranging from Renaissance to Contemporary. This dynamic ensemble, made up of students from the music program, other areas of study across the University, as well as graduates and members of the community, has performed in some of North America's great concert halls including Carnegie Hall in New York, Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto, Symphony Hall in Chicago, and the Winspear Centre in Edmonton.

2009-10 highlights for the choir include performing the official Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay Anthem at the relay ceremony in Regina, a national convention performance for the Association of Canadian Choral Communities, a joint workshop with Jon Washburn and the Vancouver Chamber Choir, preparations for the release of a compact disc recording, performances of Fauré’s Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Hear My Prayer with the University Orchestra, and Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky with the Regina Symphony. The ensemble rehearses once weekly for two hours. 

 
The Chamber Singers have twice captured First Prize in the Mixed Choir Category of the national CBC Amateur Choral Competition. They were also awarded First Prize in the Chamber Choir category at the International Eisteddfod in Wales
