Our History

The Island Chamber Singers was formed in May 2004 by means of a community meeting to see if there was enough interest in starting a choral group to perform only classical literature. There was that interest and the group was formed with Jane Lindberg, DMA as Music Director. The first concert was performed in November 2004 at First Baptist Church in Fernandina Beach. Twenty-four members of the group sang with a professional string quartet. Since that time, Island Chamber Singers has grown to thirty-five strong. The vision of the group is to provide an opportunity for members to sing classical literature and to develop an audience on Amelia Island for that literature.
