South Holland Master Chorale

The South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to our 2018-2019 season under the direction of Albert M. Jackson. As has been the case for the past 20 years, 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. 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.


Upcoming Concerts


Music of Mendelssohn

Sunday, May 5, 2019 – 3:30 pm (please note time!)

Mendelssohn’s second symphony, called the “Hymn of Praise,” was written in the style of Beethoven’s 9th symphony, with a free-standing, hour-long finale which serves as a concert in itself, and includes a full orchestra, chorus, and soloists. Come to bask in the luminous music of Felix Mendelssohn as the Chorale is once again joined by soloists and the Lake Shore Symphony Orchestra for our eighth annual spring choral/orchestral concert! This year we are also honored to have with us the astonishingly talented Davidsmeier Quartet, four sisters ages 11-16, playing the lovely menuetto from Mendelssohn’s string quartet op. 44. For more information, email or call 708-210-2913.
