The South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to our GALA 20TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON under the direction of Albert M. Jackson. Although the chorale itself dates back to the early 1970s, our 2018 season marks two decades of music making with Mr. 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.
Thrilling, haunting, enchanting, exciting – these are just a few of the adjectives use by audiences throughout the world in describing the monumental Requiem Mass of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Written in the last year of his life, this tremendous work was considered by Mozart to be the music for his own funeral. Come bask in the beauty of Mozart’s final work as the Chorale is once again joined by soloists and the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra for our seventh annual spring choral/orchestral concert. As with our other concerts, there are two venues to choose from. Take your pick, or come to both!
