Pacific’s Chamber Singers are led by Dr. Scott Tuomi, chair of the Music Department and director of choral activities. Tuomi, an accomplished tenor soloist, teaches music history and vocal studies at Pacific. He has sung in numerous festivals and concerts, including the William Byrd Festival, in which he and his wife, Leslie, have performed together. Tuomi is also director of the St. Michael’s Singers at St. Michael and All-Angels Episcopal Church.
The Chamber Singers are comprised of students from several academic fields, as participation in the University’s ensembles is not limited solely to music students. The Chamber Singers have toured internationally, as well as in the Pacific Northwest and northern California.
Pacific also offers several other musical ensembles to students, including the Philharmonic orchestra, Jazz Band and Concert Choir.
