• Capital University Philomel Chamber Ensemble
  • Under the direction of Dr. Lynda Hasseler, Capital University’s Philomel, which means Nightingale, is a select ensemble of singers who master the challenge of advanced literature from a range of musical styles spanning Renaissance to contemporary/pop styles.


    With extensive training rooted in the rich Lutheran heritage of fine a cappella singing and a longstanding global touring tradition, Philomel is more than a collection of beautiful voices. It is a choral envoy of joy, hope and positive social change that leverages the transformative power of music to connect people from diverse cultures around the world.


    Unique to this group is a repertoire whose styles span a wide range of secular and sacred choral literature, spirituals, gospel, carols, music celebrating a global perspective, and jazz and pop music.
