Chant Claire Chamber Choir was founded in Fall of 2013 by Benjamin Bedroske, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire music education program and the director of choirs at Whitnall High School. Ben’s experience with the Eau Claire Statesmen and his love of choral music inspired him to create a group to help provide  talented singers with an opportunity to keep their skills sharp with rigorous choral repertoire and perform for Milwaukee audiences. The name derives from the Eau Claire origins of many of the choir’s members. In french, “chant claire” translates to “clear song.”

The group began rehearsing in September 2013, and performed its first concert in December 2013. Today we continue to have one large solo concert each fall and spring, and have been pleased to have the opportunity to perform collaborative concerts with such groups as the Marion Consort, the Alverno College Choir, the Milwaukee Youth Chorale and the UW-Eau Claire Concert Choir.
