Repertoire ranges from medieval chant to Renaissance madrigals and masses and occasionally to baroque operas and oratorios. The group varies in size but is usually about 15-25 singers. The personnel includes undergraduate and graduate students (of voice, composition, musicology, mathematics, computer science, engineering, and business), as well as other individuals associated with CWRU, including a cardiologist and a clinical researcher. All of these members love making music in a small choral setting. Early Music Singers is an ensemble specializing in vocal music from before 1750.

EMS I rehearses Tuesday evenings, 5:30-7:30 PM and EMS II meets during an arranged time. During a typical semester, there is one formal concert (Harkness Chapel), a few smaller events, and frequent performances at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
