Welcome to our Season

Dear friends of and listeners to the South Holland Master Chorale:

What an exciting start to our journey together! I’m delighted with the concerts we brought to our community in my first season with the chorale. The choir delivered exceptional performances, and we received a fantastic response from our audience. We are thrilled to continue our journey toward providing outstanding concerts and musical experiences to all.

I cordially invite you to join us for the 2023-24 Season, where we will explore a diverse range of musical masterpieces – from old to new, secular to sacred, and from powerful to serene. When you hear the chorale perform, you will be swept away by the collective synthesis and synergy of our voice and spirit as we give you the Music Down in My Soul.

– Philip Bauman

South Holland Master Chorale

The South Holland Master Chorale welcomes you to our 2023-2024 season our second year under the new leadership of Philip Bauman. The Chorale is excited to usher in a new era of leadership and continue our spectacular traditions for GREAT choral performances. As has been the case for the past 24 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.
