The Chamber Singers is an ensemble of fourteen singers chosen by audition from the membership of The Bemidji Choir. This group specializes in early music from the ancient, Renaissance, Baroque, and Early Classical eras. During the fall semester, The Chamber Singers serve as the Royal Court for the annual madrigal dinners.

In 1996, The Chamber Singers performed in Carnegie Hall as the centerpiece of the first annual National Madrigal Festival in New York. In 2002 the Chamber Singers performed at the North Central Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Des Moines, Iowa. In April of 2015, the Chamber Singers performed again at Carnegie Hall at the annual Gotham SINGS! Choral Showcase.
