Our classical concerts are performed throughout the Chicago south suburbs and Northwest Indiana. We invite you to join us for this pivotal season! As is the long-standing tradition with the Chorale, admission to all concerts is free of charge. Free-will donations are gratefully accepted.

Each classical concert of our 2018-2019 season has something different and special to offer:

Come to listen to the crystalline harmonies of ancient hymns in new settings by Swedish composer Anders Ohrwall, and lend your voice to the singing of grand Christmas carols to the accompaniment of instruments and organs! In addition to the beautiful stained-glass sanctuary of St. Victor’s, which has been our home for 18 seasons, we are now offering the same concert in the spacious Sanctuary of St. Maria Goretti Parish in Dyer, IN!

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! As with our other concerts, there are two venues to choose from. Take your pick, or come to both! For more information, email or call 708-210-2913.
