About: Austin Singers

Fifty auditioned voices singing the most inspiring music in Austin, Texas! The Austin Singers, a fifty-voice chorus, was founded in the fall of 1995 under the direction of Lanier Bayliss. Ara Carapetyan assumed the role as music director in 2005. In 2007 Dr. Dwight Bigler became Austin Singers' new music director. In July, 2008 Assistant Director Timothy Workman succeeded Dr. Bigler, who moved on to become Trinity University Choral Director. This volunteer ensemble rehearses weekly and typically presents three concerts per season. Members include school and church choir directors, degreed musicians, and novice amateurs. Some have only sung with a community chorus for a short while, but at least two have sung in choirs for more than 50 years. We are school teachers, college professors, psychologists, computer programmers, state workers, and attorneys. We all volunteer our time and pay dues to support the organization. We sing because we love choral music. The Austin Singers have gained a unique position among Austin-area performing groups. The innovative programming uniquely focuses on choral works from different cultures and countries, recognizing and reflecting the diversity of the Austin community and the power and beauty of music throughout the world and throughout time.
