The South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to our 2021-2022 season under the direction of Albert M. Jackson. As has been the case for the past 22 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 premier 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.
South Holland Master Chorale is a premier choral group, under the direction of Albert M. Jackson, that performs classical concerts throughout the Chicago Southern Suburbs and Northwest Indiana. We have over 100 members and are recognized for our notable performances including Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Grand Mass in C minor, Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise, and most recently the Mozart Requiem, Bernstein’s Mass, and the concert version of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess with the Illinois Philharmonic.
