The Berkeley Broadway Singers (BBS) is a 75-member community chorus under the music direction of Trente Morant. We sing songs from Broadway shows and movie musicals, with a strong dash of standards from the Great American Songbook, nostalgic tunes from the 20s, 30s, and 40s, as well as jazz, Latin, doo-wop, blues, and other popular music.
We are dedicated to providing a joyful and creative music experience for our members and our audiences. By giving free concerts each season, we reach a large diverse community. We strive for artistic excellence, and encourage the musical development of each singer and the chorus as a whole.
