South Holland Master Chorale

South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to the 2016-2017 symphonic chorus season! Although the group has been associated with different academic institutions over the past many years, we are now very excited to be once again in South Holland, and operating as a civic branch of the village itself. Our season, our singers, and our dedication to presenting the very best in choral literature have all remained at the same high level you have come to know, expect, and appreciate. Continuing as it has for the past 18 years under the direction of Albert M. Jackson, the South Holland Master Chorale remains the Chicago Southland’s premiere symphonic chorus, having performed many of the greatest masterpieces of classical choral and choral/orchestral literature.

The 100+ member South Holland chorus has performed throughout the Chicago south suburbs and Northwest Indiana, with orchestras including the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, the LaPorte Symphony, the Illinois Philharmonic, and the Lake Shore Symphony Orchestra. The group also undertook a successful European concert tour to Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic in 2011.
