Singers are selected through audition, and the Chamber Choir attracts the finest choral musicians on the Tech campus. Its members are principally all-state-level singers who have extensive background and experience in ensemble singing. The Chamber Choir performs challenging literature with a special emphasis on Baroque, and modern works. The GT Chamber Choir was recently featured with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, New Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Atlanta Opera, and Atlanta Baroque Orchestra.
