Based in Scripps Ranch, Chamber Bravura is a group of public school students whose beginning members are sophomores and juniors in High School. "We began Chamber Bravura as an cappella group out of our middle school after we performed in a prestigious concert in Carnegie Hall," says the group. "We have combined with members of the Chamber chorus at Marshall Middle School and have begun to perform together."
Since their original performance in Carnegie Hall in 2012, they were invited to perform a mass in Saint Peter's Basilica in June 2013, as well as being invited back to perform in Carnegie Hall twice in 2014.
"We rehease only once a week after school, proving our dedication and diligence to achieve so much, and sound so good, with such little rehearsal. We look forward to the years to come as a group and hope to perform in more locations around the world." In 2014, the group announced plans for a European tour, including performances throughout Prague and Austria in July.
