The Rich Sounds of Chorale Midwest -

 Excerpts From the 2021-2022 Season

Chorale Midwest is an audition-only choir made up of musicians from the Eastern Iowa area. The Chorale boasts a number of music educators and enthusiasts each with a background steeped in various musical experiences.


Members of the Chorale range in age from senior high school students to older adults who all come together in the spirit of music to create a cohesive sound that celebrates music from early music to music of the preeminent choral composers of today.
