Founded in 1985, the Yale Camerata is a choral ensemble of approximately 70 voices with a special commitment to new choral music. Its membership consists of Yale students, faculty, and staff, as well as experienced singers from the greater New Haven area. It is led by Yale associate professor adjunct of choral conducting, Dr. Felicia Barber.

Camerata rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:30-10 p.m. in Hendrie Hall at the Yale School of Music.


Camerata has four concert performances each academic year. Spring 2024 events include a concert with the Yale Glee Club and orchestra on February 11 featuring José Nunes’ Garcia’s Te Deum, and two concerts of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem with the Yale Glee Club and Yale Symphony Orchestra—the first on April 3 in Woolsey Hall, and the second at St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City on April 7.
