Chicago Chorale - About


Chicago Chorale offers concerts of notable music. The choir’s repertoire ranges from the sixteenth century to the present and includes well-loved choral works as well as overlooked masterpieces, but always music that is stimulating and challenging. Dedicated to building audiences for this repertoire and sustaining the tradition that gave rise to it, Chorale’s Artistic Director and members embrace education and outreach as a central part of the group’s mission. Major performances typically include free, pre-concert lectures on topics related to the program or composers. Outreach is accomplished through community events, such as open rehearsals and interactive sing-a-longs, as well as reprise concert performances in communities outside the city. Chorale performs throughout the Chicago area in venues that are visually and acoustically appropriate to its repertoire; generally speaking, this means concerts are presented in churches, rather than in concert halls. Above all else, the choir is committed to musical excellence. The take as their guiding principle the concept of the amateur in the truest sense of the word: those who cultivate a craft out of genuine love and dedication. Led by Artistic Director Bruce Tammen, the members of Chorale, hailing from various backgrounds and professions, take pride in continuing the tradition of great amateur choral institutions of the past.
