The Pittsburgh Camerata is a professional chamber choir that was founded in 1974 and has a special focus on works of the Baroque era and of the 20th century. Each year, under the leadership of Rebecca A. Rollett, the Camerata performs a 9-concert series in the greater Pittsburgh area. The choir’s programming is often inventive, as evidenced in a concert where short readings of classic literature were paired with relevant musical pieces, or in Pittsburgh Camerata recordings like “Of Modern Invention: American Choral Music” which features a cappella music from America’s past and present.
