We perform a diverse repertoire consisting of many styles and time periods, seeking to create an inspiring and unique experience for our audience.

This Season...

Performances in the 2016-17 Season are sure to delight followers of the chorale. We begin this Fall with Franz Josef Haydn's "Theresienmesse," a large work with all Haydn's characteristic appeal. This Spring we will take on a lighter tone with a collection of works not to be missed! We feature composers such as Moses Hogen, Benjamin Britten, and John Rutter just to name a few. 

Each concert (November and April) 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.
