Join us this season

We love to sing! If you do too, there is a place for you in the Chorale. We are a volunteer ensemble who strives for artistic excellence, comprised of singers of all ages and experiences. We perform 2-3 concerts per season, and you are invited to join us for one or all of them. We perform a diverse repertoire consisting of many styles and time periods, seeking to create an inspiring and unique experience for our audience. The Metropolitan Chorale is a wonderful community of singers, and we invite you to join our family for the 2015-2016 season!

Rehearsals for our March concert begin on Monday, November 30 at 7:00 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Cedar Falls.

This Season...

Performances in the 2015-16 Season cover an incredible range of vocal music styles, country of origin and time-period. Established master composers with household names, new compositions from composers with Cedar Valley ties, and a Grammy-winning British composer are all represented this season. 

Each concert (November, March and May) provides two hours of professional-grade, family-friendly, vocal ensemble music. You will be amazed at the sound and so glad you invested this time for your grandkids, your family or yourself.
