In recent years, UNF singers have worked with internationally acclaimed guest conductors and clinicians including Simon Carrington, Chanticleer, Bob Chilcott, Simon Halsey, Joey Martin, Gene Peterson, Eugene Rogers, Sandra Snow, and Eric Whitacre. The ensembles have performed with the Yuval Ron Ensemble, at the 2013 State American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) Conference, the 2014 Southern Division ACDA Convention, with the Royal Philharmonic in 2009, and frequently with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. Aside from regional performances, the UNF chamber singers have performed internationally in Italy, Portugal, and South Africa, and are headed to the American Celebration of Music in the Baltics in the spring of 2018. In all of their endeavors, members of the UNF choral ensembles work to deeply understand the music they sing and the cultures from which it comes. Singers perform with the highest artistic standards and find tremendous joy in making the music come alive. Dr. Cara Tasher, Director of Choral Studies at the University of North Florida, has led the UNF Chamber Singers since 2006.
