Although Charis performs repertoire from Renaissance to Contemporary, the group concentrates on settings of fine poetry by contemporary American composers. Charis has performed (and recorded) a number of works by such composers, including James Bassi, Franz Biebl, Julie Dolphin, William Hawley, Judith Zaimont, Nancy Wertsch, Elliot Z. Levine, and James Harold Carr.
In addition to various benefits and special appearances, Charis typically prepares three annual programs, in early December, March and May, some with several performances.
