A Chicago Chorale Christmas at Ravinia Festival

Chicago Chorale is a professional-level ensemble of singers who cultivate their craft out of genuine love and dedication, giving freely of their time and talent. We enrich the lives of those in our community by broadening awareness of, and deepening the emotional connection to great choral music. Our artistic vision is to give sensitive and thought-provoking performances of a diverse choral repertoire, from well-loved works to overlooked masterpieces to new commissions. Chicago Chorale selects music that will challenge and thrill listeners and performers alike, and maintains a commitment to artistic excellence and integrity.

Celebrating its 19th anniversary in the 2019-2020 season, the 60-voice ensemble enjoys the highest artistic and community reputation, having been named five times since 2012 in “top choral performance of the year” lists by Chicago area critics. The ensemble has recorded seven CDs, and embarks upon its fourth international tour in 2020.
